Apple's Looking at a Lawsuit from Former Employees Over Unpaid Wages

Uh-oh, looks like someone's in trouble. Apple is being sued for not paying overtime to former employees in retail, reports re/code. The class action lawsuit was filed by Brandon Felczer, along with other corporate workers, because the tech giant did not pay overtime for employees' missed breaks and meal times, thus violating California's labour code.

 

The former Apple employees claim their last paycheck didn't include any overtime pay. And they are not the only ones – Tyler J. Belong, their San Diego lawyer, says he might be representing the interests of about 20,000 employees who are in the same situation.

 

Initially filed in 2011, the dispute was certified as a class-action suit by the California Superior Court.

The abcnews also reports similar lawsuits against Apple in San Francisco. One plaintiff says she has been subject to security searches and worked hours of unpaid overtime. Another plaintiff has reported bag inspections while employed at an Apple store, as well as unpaid backwages. By not compensating employees during the waiting period, Apple has broken the Fair Labor Standards Act.

 

The news comes as Apple's third fiscal quarter results are released, with the company reporting $37.4 billion in revenue and net profit of $7.7 billion.
