AT&T Accused of Failing to Pay Overtime

By on May 18, 2015

A class action lawsuit was filed against AT&T Inc. for allegedly violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and California law by failing to pay overtime to Training Specialists, employees who design or present training materials to other AT&T employees.

The complaint alleges that AT&T misclassified its Training Specialists as exempt from overtime pay in order to avoid paying them for time worked during late nights and weekends in excess of 40 hours per week.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in the Central District of California.  Plaintiffs seek certification of the class, a judgment that defendants’ labor practices are unlawful pursuant to the FLSA and an award to damages.
