Ontario judge approves Scotiabank overtime settlement

TORONTO — An Ontario Superior Court judge has approved a $20.6 million revised settlement for about 1,600 Scotiabank employees who say they had to work overtime without being paid for it.

The settlement stems from a class-action lawsuit over unpaid overtime that was settled almost two years. The case began close to a decade ago. Since the 2014 settlement, the bank has paid about $18.7 million to individuals involved in the lawsuit.
