On July 12, 2013, the San Francisco employment lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action against Wells Fargo Insurance Services USA, Inc. ("Wells Fargo") for allegedly failing to pay their Account Executive overtime wages. Morales v. Wells Fargo Insurance Services USA, Inc., Case No. CGC-13-532814 is currently pending in the San Francisco County Superior Court for the State of California.

The class action complaint alleges that under the California Labor Code, Wells Fargo is required to pay all persons employed in the job position of Account Executive overtime wages for their time worked in excess of eight hours in a workday and hours worked in excess of forty hours in any workweek. The lawsuit further claims that the Account Executives employed by Wells Fargo are "managers in name only" and that Wells Fargo allegedly misclassified the Account Executives because these employees fail to meet all the criteria under any of the exemptions to overtime pay in California. As a result, the Complaint requests that these employees should be paid for all the overtime hours they have worked for Wells Fargo.

Specifically, the Complaint alleges "[t]he Account Executives perform menial day-to-day sales related tasks and report to sales people to assist these sales people in selling Wells Fargo's Products."
