Tri Counties Bank in Chico, Calif., will pay as much as $2.5 million to settle a class-action lawsuit that claims it failed to properly pay overtime.

A former female bank employee filed the lawsuit in the Superior Court of California in Kern County. The lawsuit claimed that the bank improperly classified its assistant branch managers as exempt under California law. The lawsuit also alleged that the bank did not properly pay overtime and failed to provide meal breaks, rest periods, accurate wage statements and suitable seating.
