A federal judge in Kansas has certified a class of more than 19,000 current and former Sprint Nextel Corp. retail employees who are suing the telecommunications company for allegedly shorting them on commissions. The certification order is in a lawsuit filed in February in which retail employees for Sprint Nextel in Texas and Louisiana contended that because of computer problems in the aftermath of the Sprint merger with Nextel, the employees didn’t receive hundreds of dollars each month in commissions they were entitled to in the course of their work. In subsequent court filings, lawyers for Sprint have denied the material allegations in the lawsuit by the Plaintiffs. Interestingly, the Overland Park-based company ranks number one on the Kansas City Business Journal’s list of area public companies.
