Sutherland Settles Unpaid Overtime Lawsuit for $4M


This is a settlement for the Employment lawsuit.

Rochester, NY: A $4 million settlement has been reached in an unpaid overtime class action against Sutherland Global Servies Ltd.

The suit, brought by call center telemarketers in 2005, alleged that Sutherland didn't pay its call center employees the overtime owed.

The lawsuit was originally brought by two Rochester employees of the Perinton-based business process outsourcing company, and grew to 10 named employees and hundreds of unnamed workers, all of whom claimed they regularly worked more than 40 hours a week but were not paid overtime.

Although Sutherland denied the allegations, it agreed to a $4 million settlement to be divided among members of the class and U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer gave final approval to the settlement last week, ending the litigation.
