    From a article posted 7/2/2014

    " We have previously discussed how, over the past 10+ years, courts have increasingly recognized that insurance claims adjusters are exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The recent cases of Estrada v. Maguire Ins. Agency, Inc., 12-cv-604 (E.D. Penn. Feb. 28, 2014) and Locke v. Am. Bankers Ins. Co. of Florida, 12-cv-1430 (E.D. Cal. May 19, 2014), further reflect this trend and that insurance adjusters are properly exempt even if they are assigned “relatively simple” claims and/or use detailed job aids and computer software as part of their claims adjusting work."

    Summary from the article;

    "Bottom Line: Courts continue to find that, regardless of whether they handle “low-level” claims, follow detailed guidelines or use automated claims adjusting software, insurance claims adjusters are administratively exempt when they conduct coverage investigations and make recommendations regarding coverage and/or liability."
