Escrow officers and escrow closers who are wrongfully denied overtime pay may be able to recover back pay, liquidated damages and attorneys' fees.
Overtime pay aims to compensate escrow closers, escrow officers and other employees with time-and-a-half pay for hours worked in excess of 40 during a single workweek.
Escrow closers and escrow officers who were wrongfully denied overtime may be able to recover back pay for up to the two years prior to filing an overtime lawsuit. If the worker's employer willfully violated overtime law, the employee may be able to collect up to three years of unpaid overtime.

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.
