SAN FRANCISCO – A group of assistant branch managers at Patelco CU has filed a civil suit claiming the credit union has misclassified them as exempt employees, enabling Patelco to avoid paying them for overtime and missed meals and rest breaks.

According to the suit, first filed in state court then transferred to federal court last week, the assistant branch managers routinely worked long hours without receiving any overtime pay. The suit also alleges the assistant managers were never compensated for missed meal and rest breaks.
