Groupon sued in overtime class action

October 12, 2011 by

A group of former employees has filed a class action suit against Groupon over unpaid overtime.  The plaintiffs, known as “deal vetters,” claim that the company failed to pay overtime to employees that worked more than 40 hours a week.  Deal vetters’ responsibilities included reviewing the terms of the transactions between Groupon and the merchants it partnered with.

This is the second class action filed against Groupon by former employees recently.  Last month, a group of salespeople claimed that Groupon owed three years of back wages and punitive damages for hundreds of employees.
