Apple sued for overtime payments


Apple sued for overtime payments

Warwick Ashford

A former employee at an Apple site in Florida is suing the company for failing to pay for extra hours worked.

Kenyon Zahner, believed to have worked as a Mac technician, claims Apple expects employees to work over 40 hours a week without overtime pay, according to reports.

But Florida state law requires companies to pay overtime to non-managerial employees.

Zahner has filed a class action lawsuit against Apple, seeking compensation for himself and other Apple employees allegedly not paid for overtime.

Apple is yet to file a formal response in the case, but observers say the lawsuit could be costly as IBM settled similar claims in 2006 for $65m.
