HSBC Bank Faces a Class Action: Operations Officers Seek Help for Alleged Wage & Hour Law Violations

On July 27, 2011, a class action lawsuit was filed against HSBC Bank USA, N.A. by the California employment lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik, on behalf of Operations Officers who claim the national bank violated their rights under the California Labor Code. The complaint alleges that the national bank unlawfully failed to compensate operations officers for overtime hours worked and illicitly prevented them from viewing complete and accurate wage statements, in violation of state wage and hour laws.

Updates on this class action suit will be discussed here in the coming months.
