Attorneys representing Class Action Lawsuit against Metlife are urging that a federal court order Metlife to reimburse benefits to thousands of Class Action Lawsuit victims who suffered injuries at their facility. A Class Action Lawsuit is an action initiated by members of a class or group who sue another person or entity on behalf of everyone subject to the complaint. Class Action cases in the United States typically involve injuries, death, or illnesses caused at work, at play, or by an agent or representative of a company. Such cases are handled by specialized legal teams called Class Action Attorneys.

Sanford Heilsler and Schneider Law Firm has filed a $50 million national class action lawsuit against Metlife Insurance Company, U.S.

District Court for the District of Columbia, for failing to pay long-overdue overtime to its employees. According to the complaint, LTD Claimants primarily gathers data on disability-related claims, gather medical records, and compile other important information needed to process disability insurance claims. Throughout the course of the litigation, the firm’s class of case will be forced to compensate scores of injured workers including unpaid wages, pain and suffering, and other benefits not recovered during the life of the case. These workers are represented by Attorneys specializing in these types of cases.

The Class Action lawsuit was filed on behalf of Claimants who are employed at Metlife Insurance Company’s New Haven, Connecticut headquarters.

On February 27, the firm’s named in the complaint have agreed to settle with Claimants. On March 3rd, the court ordered that Claimants must repay to a firm located in Cincinnati, Ohio, a sum that is expected to be approximately $5 million.

According to the complaint, the Class Action lawsuit seeks damages for violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Rehabilitation Act, the Fair Minimum Wage Act, and other state and federal statutes.

Among these statutes is the Overtime Act, requiring employers to provide paid overtime to employees, and the Federal Minimum Wage Act, which requires all employers to establish a minimum hourly rate of pay. In addition, the complaint contends that Metlife’s policies and practices, which include long overtime wait periods and other discrimination, constitutes direct and intentional discrimination and violates the Americans With Disabilities Act. The Class Action lawsuit further claims that Metlife has refused to make available training programs and disability insurance to its employees, including those with disabilities. Additionally, the complaint asserts that Metlife has failed to respond to repeated requests for additional training and disability assistance. On April 3rd, the court ordered the insurance company to cease and desist from making any further false or misleading representations about their policies and practices, including claims relating to long overtime wait periods, disability benefits, and other statutes.

According to lawyers at the law firm of Jones Day, the plaintiffs have not been able to recoup any damages through the Class Action lawsuit, as the long delays in receiving disability insurance and long period of exclusion from receiving further training, coupled with Metlife’s refusal to offer training, further damages.

Further, the specialists note that the Class Action lawsuit is without merit as there is no evidence of unlawful or fraudulent conduct on behalf of Metlife, and furthermore, the insurance company has offered to settle the case. Furthermore, they add that even if there was such evidence of wrongdoing, such evidence does not show that any amount of money has been illegally taken from employees. The class action lawsuit was brought by minorities and women, who were allegedly discriminated against in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and other federal statutes. Many people with disabilities are unemployed or under-employed, and therefore are unable to file claims for damages as per the Fair Labor Standards Act. As such, the lawyers say that the Disability Insurance and Workers’ Compensation Act afford additional protections to such individuals.

The attorneys also say that the claims failed to state a sufficient claim for financial losses, as the courts must show actual damages from which recovery can be made, and defendants argue that plaintiffs did not state any facts pertinent to recovery.

In addition, the lawyers say that the Class Action lawsuit fails to specify a link between insurance companies and the alleged discriminatory acts The defendants maintain that such link is only incidental, and that insurance companies have never refused benefits based on disability. In addition, defendants say that the case cannot fail because there are many other cases of negligence in the insurance industry, such as the recent merger of Lincoln Financial Corporation with General Reinsurance Corporation. In short, the judge in the case will determine whether the Class Action lawsuit was filed within the statute of limitations.
