Current and former AT&T employees have banded together and sued the communications giant claiming up to $1 billion in unpaid overtime pay. The class action lawsuit was filed in federal court in San Francisco and Atlanta and stems from the alleged misclassification by AT&T of former BellSouth Corp. managers who joined AT&T when it merged with BellSouth in 2006. The suit alleges that, although classified by AT&T as managers, the employees’ duties were essentially non-management. If it is determined that these employees were misclassified, they will be eligible for overtime pay and back pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
AT&T’s wireless operations are headquartered in Atlanta, Georgiahttps://www.robertjfleming.com/lawyer-attorney-1371077.html.
