Court Grants Conditional Certification in case against Bloomberg
On February 28, 2023, the Court granted plaintiffs’ renewed motion for conditional certification and to issue notice to the class. The plaintiffs allege that they were misclassified as exempt under the federal and state overtime laws, were paid a salary, but not overtime wages when they worked more than 40 hours in a week. Judge Quraishi approved all aspects of the notice that plaintiffs argued for, including sending the notice via First Class U.S. Mail and email, agreeing to a 60-day period during which people can opt-in to the action, and approving a reminder postcard to be sent to those collective members who have not joined as of 21 days before the close of the opt-in period.
Previously, we sent notice to a group of NY class members who were able to join the case—now, we are able to expand that group to Global Data Specialists, Global Data Analysts, and Data Analysts regardless of where they worked.
