Escrow Closers and Officers May Be Able to Recover Unpaid Overtime
Escrow Officers and Closers Unpaid Overtime Claims
Working more than 40 hours a week as an escrow closer or escrow officer? Receive a free legal consultation today to find out if you are entitled to time-and-a-half compensation for your overtime hours.
Under federal law, employers are required to pay “non-exempt” workers 1.5 times their regular rate for all overtime hours worked. It seems to be a widespread practice in the title insurance industry for employers to misclassify escrow closers and escrow officers as “exempt” employees to avoid paying these workers for their overtime hours. According to several court rulings, however, escrow officers and escrow closers are non-exempt employees and therefore are entitled to overtime pay.
