The Working Solutions Law Firm files complaint against Wells Fargo Advisors

November 14th, 2014 Christopher Davis

The Working Solutions Law Firm filed a complaint against Wells Fargo Advisors in the Eastern District of New York in October on behalf of Financial Advisors in WFA’s Private Client Group for unpaid overtime wages, minimum wages, unlawful promissory-note compensation, and other practices which unlawfully reduced their compensation. This lawsuit has received press attention, and other legal commentators have noted the strength of class claims.

Ms. Hartley also separately filed a discrimination lawsuit stemming from intense harassment she received in WFA’s Garden City office during her employment as a Financial Advisor in the Private Client Group.

Christopher Davis was quoted in the Financial Times’ Fund Fire column in an article about both the overtime matter and the discrimination case. With respect to the discrimination matter, Mr. Davis explained to Fund Fire, “The allegations that our client has put forth in the complaint involve grossly offensive conduct motivated by race and the claims are supported by documentary evidence.”

The attorneys are looking to speak with other Private Client Group Financial Advisors as investigative witnesses and for the sake of their continuing investigation into widespread wage violations. Financial Advisors who wish to speak to the firm’s attorneys for investigative purposes, or for any other inquiries, should contact Christopher Davis, Rachel Haskell, or Megan Dubatowka at 646-356-1010.
