AT&T Mobility LLC has agreed to pay $5 million to resolve a putative class action brought by employees at the company’s retail stores who alleged they were shortchanged on overtime and other wages. Andrew Prizler, who sued AT&T on behalf of a putative class of employees in California, has asked a judge to grant final approval to a settlement that would resolve wage and hour allegations leveled against the mobile phone company. Under the agreement, which secured preliminary court approval in March, AT&T would pay $5 million that would go toward costs, attorneys’ fees and payouts to more than 2,600 employees. The settlement class would include all AT&T retail sales consultants who worked for the company between Oct. 19, 2010, and Oct. 27, 2012. The class would be limited to those employees who worked overtime during any given week, and earned commissions as part of their pay that week. Approximately 2,600 employees participating in the settlement would receive an average payout of about $1,400 under the terms of the agreement.
