Class action on behalf of AT&T Training Professionals for overtime pay
Current and former training professionals for AT&T have filed a class and collective action lawsuit against AT&T Services, Inc. (“AT&T”) alleging that AT&T incorrectly classified them as exempt from the overtime pay requirements of federal and state law, and asking the Court to require AT&T to pay them for the many overtime hours they have worked for AT&T in recent years. The lawsuit has been brought on behalf of all current and former training designers and deliverers who have worked for AT&T nationwide since August 2012 (and since August 2011 for those working in California).
In September 2016, the Court certified a nationwide FLSA collective of designers and deliverers. AT&T then moved for summary judgment as to the individual plaintiffs’ claims, arguing that designers and deliverers regularly exercise high levels of judgment and discretion as to important matters in the workplace. In April 2017, the Court denied AT&T’s motions for summary judgment, finding numerous factual disputes as to the degree of independent judgment and discretion designers and deliverers actually exercise since they have to follow AT&T design templates, coaching tools, and instructional material.
