Associated Bank Loan Officers Represented by Nichols Kaster, PLLP Bring Action to Recover Their Overtime Pay

MADISON, WI--(Marketwire - February 1, 2011) - On January 28, 2011, Plaintiff Roxanne Andler filed a putative class and collective action lawsuit in the Western District of Wisconsin seeking minimum wages and overtime pay from her former employer, Associated Banc-Corp. The Complaint asserts that Associated misclassified its loan officers as exempt from minimum wages and overtime pay, paying them on a commissions-basis, and just recently reclassified them as non-exempt. Even though Associated is currently paying its loan officers minimum wages and overtime pay, the Complaint asserts that Associated has not paid its current and former loan officers back wages for all of the hours they worked prior to the reclassification. They seek to be paid for those hours worked. 

Associated Banc-Corp is headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It has more than 280 branches located throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois, and employs over 100 loan officers. Plaintiff Roxanne Andler worked as a loan officer at its Madison, Wisconsin branch location. 

Attorney Michele R. Fisher of Nichols Kaster, PLLP stated, "It is our position that Associated violated the minimum wage and overtime laws. Although the company apparently changed its policy and now pays minimum wages and overtime pay, it still owes its current and former loan officers money for hours worked prior to the change where they did not receive the proper minimum wages or overtime pay. Our goal is to help these employees recover their pay." 

The case is titled Andler v. Associated Banc-Corp, Case No. 3:11-cv-00079 (W.D. Wisc.). The group is represented by Michele R. Fisher and Tim C. Selander of Nichols Kaster, PLLP in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Additional information about the case can be found at www.overtimecases.com or by contacting Nichols Kaster, PLLP toll free at (877) 448-0492.
