Lawsuit filed: Sun Loan Company sued for misclassifying a Branch Manager as an exempt employee and not paying overtime

The attorneys at Dunham & Jones, P.C. have sued Sun Loan Company in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, San Antonio Division.  Alexis Tealer was employed by Defendants as a “branch manager” and was paid a salary without being paid overtime compensation for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek.  The suit alleges that even though she was called a “manager”, Ms. Tealer was actually misclassified as exempt from the overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act.  In addition to unpaid overtime, the suit seeks penalties, fees, and costs.
