Zillow the Target of Two Employee Lawsuits

Orange County resident and former Zillow employee Ian Freeman has filed a federal lawsuit against Zillow. His attorney, Mark Geragos, is seeking class-action status on the behalf of Freeman and at least 120 of Zillow’s hours “inside sales consultants,” alleging they were forced into working early, late and through lunch breaks without pay. The amount of overtime in dispute is $5 million.

Freeman is alleging that Zillow’s time timekeeping system was automated to record employee’s hours as 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., whether or not the employee worked more actual hours.

A current Zillow sales associate named Ashley Boehler has filed a second lawsuit claiming that he was “written up, given poor work reviews, had lucrative sales accounts stripped from him and given to others and was micromanaged in retaliation for exposing credit card fraud, forged contracts and the use of unlicensed agents to consult with clients.” Boehler further claims he was harassed after Zillow’s upper-management violated a promise to keep his name confidential.
