  • Radio Shack settles OT lawsuit - FYI

    November 20th, 2007

    Radio Shack pays $8.8 million to settle overtime claims.

    In yet another big-dollar Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) lawsuit, payouts are set to begin under an $8.8 million settlement between Radio Shack and employees who claimed they were cheated out of overtime.

    The settlement relates to five separate actions filed in 2002 against the company in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Florida and New York. Like the multitude of other FLSA cases, the primary allegation was that Radio Shack improperly misclassified “manager” employees as exempt to avoid paying overtime.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
