Facebook is being hit with a proposed class-action federal lawsuit alleging that the social-networking company purposely misclassifies employees to exempt them from overtime pay.
The suit (PDF) was brought Friday by a former salaried client solutions manager from Facebook’s office in Chicago. The woman, Susie Bigger, alleges that she and countless other Facebook workers are illegally classified as managers as part of “defendant’s scheme to deprive them of overtime compensation.”
The suit notes a “systematic, companywide wrongful classification” system for Client Solutions Managers, Customer Solutions Managers, Customer Account Managers, “or other similarly titled positions.”
