Outten & Golden has filed a nationwide class action lawsuit against American Home Mortgage alleging that loan officers were not paid overtime pay and minimum wage as required by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the state laws of California, New York, Illinois, Wisconsin, Washington, Colorado and New Jersey. The case is called, “Abrams et al. v. American Home Mortgage. et al” (No. C07-03252) and is pending in U.S. District Court for Northern California, San Francisco. The loan officers allege that they were paid on a commission-only basis for originating mortgage loan that they submitted to the company for processing. They worked in excess of 40 hours a week for which they received no extra compensation, and sometimes no compensation at all.
