Facts & Allegations
A-Med Health Care is a Specialty Pharmacy. It employs approximately 300 employees. A-Med Health Care also employs 8-10 Territory Managers at any one time to promote the services A-Med’s pharmacy provides. A-Med classified the Territory Managers as “exempt” from the labor code.
Wolfe argued that the Territory Managers were “non-exempt” under the labor code and applicable wage statement. A-Med argued that they were exempt under the Outside Salesperson or the Administrative Exemption.
The Court certified the class action, and the case settled shortly thereafter. learn more
