To all old and new employees at Apple Computers. Soon the appeals court will be reviewing the Class Action against Apple Computers. The Case is called "Miles Maria VS Apple Computers" and it claims that Apple owes 597 people overtime for having the support agents power on computers and do other activities before they logged into the phone system that logged there time on the job. The suit also claims that this practice gave them an unfair business advantage which is against the law in CA. http://www.scribd.com/doc/12282453/Miles-Maria-VS-Apple-Class-Motion-for-Certification I do not know if anyone in any other state has filed a suite like this one. But I bet that all the things that are against the law they did here in CA are also against the law in other states as well.
