Dr. Steward performed analysis of the economic damages on this wage and hour case to determine if the Kaiser Permanente recruiters lost overtime hours, missed meal breaks, and missed rest breaks. The employees assert that they were incorrectly classified as exempt employees, as a result of the misclassification they were wrongfully denied overtime pay and rest and meal breaks. To start the analysis, Dr. Steward reviewed employee payroll data and survey data for the plaintiffs. The payroll data was provided by the defendant. The survey data was provided by the plaintiff’s survey expert, Dr. Jon Krosnick. The payroll data included the length of employment for the employee, their hourly rate and the number of hours for which they were paid. This data was for the time period of 2003 to 2008. The survey data collected by Dr. Krosnick provides statistical estimates of the number of hours worked, number of missed meal periods, and number of missed rest breaks per week for the class members. In the analysis, middle, high-end, and low-end estimated overtime hour’s scenarios are performed. The middle scenario is based on the mean number of overtime hours reported by the plaintiffs in Dr. Krosnick’s survey. The low-end overtime hours are based on the lower-limit of the 95% confidence interval and the high-end overtime hours are based on the upper limit of the 95% confidence interval for the mean overtime hours. The number of overtime hours is multiplied by each plaintiff’s applicable overtime hourly rate to obtain the economic damage associated with the plaints lost overtime hours. Missed meal breaks and rest breaks are handled with the same scenario as overtime; the damage is determined by multiplying the number of missed meal break and rest break periods by the employee’s straight-time hourly rate.
