A federal judge has preliminarily approved a $1.45 million settlement in a lawsuit alleging that Premera Blue Cross failed to pay overtime to a group of tech workers. The class-action lawsuit, filed last year in U.S. District Court in Seattle, alleged that the Mountlake Terrace-based health insurance company and its subsidiaries had misclassified about 133 tech support workers as exempt from overtime pay. After workers have a chance to comment on the settlement, Judge Thomas Zilly is scheduled to decide in June whether to give the settlement final approval.
