District of Massachusetts reiterates Certification of Class of Citizens Bank Assistant Branch Managers.

As we reported this past July, Winebrake & Santillo, working with co-counsel from the Kansas City law firm of Donelon PC, obtained class certification for a class of Assistant Branch Managers (ABMs) employed at Citizens Bank locations throughout Massachusetts.  The lawsuit, entitled Lyons v. Citizens Financial Group, Inc., 11-cv-11187-GAO (D.Mass.), is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.  The ABMs allege that they were misclassified as exempt from Massachusetts overtime rights laws.  On November 9, 2012, the District of Massachusetts responded to a request from the First Circuit Court of Appeals and issued an opinion reaffirming its original class certification decision.
