Claims Adjusters

Traditionally, insurance companies refused to pay overtime wages to their claims representatives on the basis that these employees were “salaried” workers who served in administrative or supervisory positions.

  • Claims adjusters must be paid overtime for any hours they work over 40 per week.
  • classifying claims adjusters as “exempt” employees and not paying them overtime.
  • the tasks ordinarily performed by claims adjusters – such as investigating claims, communicating with policy holders and witnesses, estimating losses, setting reserves, and filling out paperwork – are “non-exempt” tasks.

Mortgage Broker

In many cases, Mortgage Brokers should be classified as nonexempt employees who are entitled to overtime pay. If you are a broker and not sure if you are covered under the FLSA, you should contact an attorney for more information.
