GameStop managers file lawsuit

GameStop managers sue

Six GameStop store managers in Louisiana have filed suit against the company, charging that they've been denied pay owed to them under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The managers complain that in some instances they were working more than 50 to 60 hours a week without proper compensation. The FLSA does exempt employers from paying overtime to workers "employed in a bona fide executive, administrative, or professional capacity," but the managers insist that they were really just grunts with no authority to make decisions, to the point that a district manager was required to hire or fire someone. Other managers who feel they've been shafted by GameStop may have a chance to join the collective-action lawsuit.
