Radio Shack Ordered by Judge to Pay Overtime
Fort Worth, Texas, In a ruling in Chicago, a federal judge has ruled that several hundred RadioShack Corp. store managers are entitled to overtime pay. A class-action lawsuit was filed in 2003 against the Fort Worth, Texas-based electronics retailer, alleging that employees classified as exempt from overtime pay were, in fact, not exempt.
Even with this current ruling, the case is far from over. Another suit, also involving overtime nonpayment allegations, is pending, and an attorney for the plaintiff group said the number being carved out is “in the hundreds” and the amount due them is “in the millions.”
