Assurant, Inc.

Unpaid Overtime Cases on Behalf of Appraisers

We currently represent former Assurant Appraisers seeking unpaid overtime wages through individual arbitrations. We allege that Assurant misclassified these Appraisers as exempt from overtime pay, and therefore failed to pay proper overtime pay when Appraisers worked over 40 hours in a week. 

Assurant’s agreements with Appraisers require that disputes be arbitrated, rather than resolved in court. We are therefore pursuing these cases in a series of individual arbitrations, rather than as a class or collective action. Individual arbitration has the benefit of speedier resolution and more individualized treatment of claims and damages.

Type of Case

Unpaid Overtime Wages


Am I eligible?

If you worked for Assurant, Inc. as an Appraiser within the past three years and were not paid overtime, you may have a claim for additional overtime compensation.

Additional Information

How Do I Pursue a Case?

To make a claim in this case for overtime compensation under federal law for hours worked over 40 in a workweek you must complete this online consent form. We will contact you after we receive your form to discuss your potential case in more detail. Please note, we will not initiate legal action on your behalf without first discussing your case with you.

What Time Frame Does This Case Cover?

There is a time limit under the federal law called a statute of limitations that allows an employee to recover unpaid wages for hours worked within two years of filing a case. If we can prove Assurant willfully violated the law, the statute of limitations may be extended to three years.

Do I Have to Pay Anything?

No, you will not have to pay us anything out of your own pocket.  We are handling these cases on a contingency basis. This means we will only be paid if the lawsuit is successful in obtaining relief either through a settlement or an award, and that payment will only come out of that settlement or award. 

How Do I Prove the Overtime Hours I Worked?

If you have records related to your work with Assurant, please keep them until we ask you for them.  However, you do not need to have records of your work hours to make a claim. If Assurant did not keep accurate time records, most courts will permit you to make a good faith estimate of your work hours.  We will seek any records the company has of your hours worked. Please ensure you do not destroy any documents or data you have that relate in any way to your work for Assurant.

How Long Will This Case Take?

The length of this kind of lawsuit varies from case to case, but they typically last one to three years.

Is There Money Available Now?

No. Your arbitration will only begin once our firm files your individual case. There is no money currently available and there is no guarantee that you will receive money for participating in an individual arbitration.

How Can I Help?

If you know of any appraisers who are interested in making a claim for unpaid overtime, we would like to hear from them. Even in individual arbitrations, there is strength in numbers.
