Verizon Ad Sales Reps Sue for Back Pay

  • February 17, 2006
A Superior Court judge in Orange County, California certified on Tuesday that a group of current and former Verizon ad workers could sue the company in a class action lawsuit for illegally docking their pay to offset missed profit margins. The class action suit could eventually result in a massive expansion from the original lawsuit brought by three former directory sales representatives. Attorneys for the plaintiffs allege that the company systematically underpaid salaried employees from 2000 to 2005, to the tune of approximately $10 million.
