GEICO Auto Damage Adjuster Trainee Update

We are currently in what is called the discovery phase.  This is where each side tries to get information that is helpful to win their case.  So far, we have taken the depositions of GEICO’s corporate representative Timothy Hession, and two trainers/managers, Anthony Visalli and Barret Lawson.  We have also been collecting data and documents from GEICO that we think will be useful at trial. 

The Court recently agreed with us that only a small group of workers will be participating in discovery, and that participation will be limited and not burdensome.  This means some plaintiffs might have to appear for a short deposition close to where they live, which will be an opportunity to answer questions about the unpaid study time.  These depositions will also be a good chance for our clients to tell their story about the long hours and challenging nature of the training.  We will be in touch with our clients who are selected for a deposition in the coming months.  Nearly 400 people from around the country have joined this case so far.
