What is the Case about?
We filed this collective action against American Income Life Insurance Company in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas for a class of non-exempt insurance agents who were not paid for all hours worked.

Anyone who worked for American Life as a non-exempt insurance agent within the past three years and was not paid for all hours worked is potentially eligible for the Case.
