Two lawsuits have been filed against the subsidiaries of AT&T. One was filed in an Atlanta federal court and the other in a San Francisco federal court. The actions seek a combined $1 billion in damages and back pay for roughly 5,000 current and former AT&T workers who were allegedly improperly classified by the company as exempt from overtime pay in violation of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act.
In the recently-filed AT&T lawsuits, the Plaintiffs are called “first level” managers within AT&T, but they allege that they are managers in name only. They don’t have managerial duties or authority. It’s alleged that many of the employees perform clerical tasks and relay information between the company managers and technicians.
