Informatica, LLC

Flynn et al v. Informatica, LLC
Case No. 3:19-cv-06192 (Northern District of California)

On September 30, 2019, we filed an overtime lawsuit on behalf of Inside Sales Representatives against Informatica, LLC (“Informatica”). The Complaint alleges that Informatica misclassified its Inside Sales Representatives (which includes Business Development Managers, Inside Sales Representatives, Sales Development Representatives, and other similar positions) as exempt and therefore denied them overtime pay. Informatica, which refers to itself as a “leader in Enterprise Cloud Data Management”, is a software company that makes and sells enterprise software solutions.

The plaintiff brought the case as a putative collective action under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and seeks to recover unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated (double) damages, and other statutorily-permitted relief for himself and others who join the case.

Our firm has partnered with Austin Kaplan of Kaplan Law Firm, PLLC in Austin, Texas to represent the Inside Sales Representatives in this action.

Type of Case

Unpaid Overtime Wages

Share

Am I eligible?

You are eligible to make a claim in this case if you worked for Informatica as an Inside Sales Representative (which includes Business Development Managers, Inside Sales Representatives, Sales Development Representatives, and other similar positions)  at any time within the past three years in any state, and were not paid an overtime premium for the hours you worked over 40 per week. 

Additional Information

Is This a Class Action? What Does that Mean?

This case is a potential collective action under federal law. The idea behind a collective action is to allow one or more people to sue on behalf of themselves and other people who have similar claims. We will be asking the court to certify this case as a collective action to allow people to proceed as a group with their overtime claims.

Which Locations Are Included?

This case seeks to include all Inside Sales Representatives that work or have worked for Informatica anywhere across the country within the past three years. 

How Do I Join This Case?

In order make a claim in this case for your unpaid overtime under the FLSA, you must complete a consent form and return it to our office. You can sign up online by clicking here.

What Time Frame Does This Case Cover?

There is a federal time limit, called a statute of limitations, that allows workers to recover unpaid overtime wages within two years of the worker signing up to join the lawsuit by completing and returning the consent form referenced above. If we can prove that Informatica willfully violated the law, the statute of limitations may be extended to three years.

Do I Have To Pay Anything?

You do not have to pay anything if you join the lawsuit. We are handling this case on a contingency basis. This means we will only be paid if the lawsuit is successful in obtaining relief either through a settlement, award, or a final judgment, and that payment will only come out of that settlement, award, or final judgment.

How Do I Prove I Worked Overtime?

If you have records of the hours you worked, please preserve and keep them until we ask you for them. However, you do not need to have records of your work hours to make a claim for your overtime pay in this case. If Informatica did not keep accurate time records, most courts will permit you to estimate your work hours. Through this lawsuit, we will seek any records the company may have of your hours worked as well.

What About Retaliation?

It is against the law for an employer to retaliate against a person for joining a lawsuit to reclaim unpaid wages. If you currently work for Informatica and you believe you may be the victim of retaliation for joining or participating in this lawsuit, contact us immediately.

How Long Will This Case Take?

The length of lawsuits varies. Cases like this typically last one to two years.

Is There Money Available Now?

No. This is a pending lawsuit. There is no money currently available and there is no guarantee that you will receive money for joining the lawsuit.

    Overtime Case Filed Against Informatica, LLC for Software Inside Sales Representatives

    On September 30, 2019, a former Business Development Manager filed an overtime lawsuit on behalf of Inside Sales Representatives against Informatica, LLC (“Informatica”). The Complaint alleges that Informatica misclassified its Inside Sales Representatives (which includes Business Development Managers, Inside Sales Representatives, Sales Development Representatives, and other similar positions) as exempt and therefore denied them overtime pay. Informatica, which refers to itself as a “leader in Enterprise Cloud Data Management”, is a software company that makes and sells enterprise software solutions.

    The plaintiff brought the case as a putative collective action under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and seeks to recover unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated (double) damages, and other statutorily-permitted relief for himself and others who join the case.

    Michele Fisher, one of the plaintiff’s attorneys stated, “regardless of how inside salespersons are paid, they are generally entitled to overtime pay when they work over forty hours a week. If they are primarily making sales from inside of the office, and not spending most of their time physically selling outside of the office, they usually qualify for overtime pay. We seek to get these salespersons paid for the long hours they worked to meet Informatica’s production goals.”

    Austin Kaplan of Kaplan Law Firm PLLC added, “technology companies have engineered solutions to some of the world’s most challenging problems but seem unwilling to engineer a way to make sure their own salespeople are paid according to the law. We are proud to represent the talented people who work inside sales jobs and to help them recover their unpaid wages and overtime.”

    Plaintiffs are represented by Michele R. Fisher, Matthew C. Helland, and Jay E. Eidsness of Nichols Kaster, PLLP, which has offices in Minneapolis, Minnesota and San Francisco, California, and Austin Kaplan of Kaplan Law Firm, PLLC in Austin, Texas. The case is entitled, Flynn et. al. v. Informatica, LLC, Case No. 3:19-cv-06192 (Northern District of California).
