Giannetto v. Computer Sciences Corporation Overtime Pay Lawsuit (“Computer Sciences Corporation I”)

In one of the largest overtime pay dispute settlements ever in the information technology industry, the Court in July 2005 granted final approval to a $24 million settlement with Computer Sciences Corporation.

Plaintiffs charged that the global conglomerate had a common practice of refusing to pay overtime compensation to its technical support workers involved in the installation and maintenance of computer hardware and software in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, California’s Unfair Competition Law, and the wage and hour laws of 13 states.
