Bell v. Farmers Insurance Exchange

     This is a web site created for class members in Bell v. Farmers Insurance Exchange, a class action lawsuit seeking overtime pay rates on behalf of Personal Lines claims reps. (Class members are claims reps who have worked in California for Farmers at any time after October 1, 1993, other than persons who have opted out.)

     This web site was created by the lawyers representing Personal Lines claims reps in this lawsuit. The purpose of the web site is to communicate with class members about the lawsuit.

     We have already won a ruling from the Court that Farmers Insurance Exchange violated California law by classifying its Personal Lines claims reps as exempt from overtime rights! Now, we are in process of litigating the remedies Farmers is liable for, including back pay to class members.

     This web site is divided into sections, which are listed in the left side of this page. Simply click on the section title to access it.

     Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions or if you have information that may be helpful to the lawsuit (all communications between class members and the lawyers representing the class are confidential attorney-client privileged communications).
