Law Firm Seeking Take-Two Testers For Class Action On Payment, Benefit Issues
Law Firm Seeking Take-Two Testers For Class Action On Payment, Benefit Issues
August 31, 2011 | By Kyle Orland




The law firm of Righetti & Glugoski, PC is seeking plaintiffs for a potential class action lawsuit alleging that Take-Two quality assurance testers weren't provided promised compensation and other benefits.

The lawsuit [PDF], was originally filed last year on behalf of former Visual Concepts QA tester Aaron Martinez in California state court.

In the suit, Martinez alleges that, between November 2006 and April 2007, Take-Two "engaged in a uniform policy and systemic scheme of wage abuse" that required hourly employees to "consistently... work off-the-clock."

The suit goes on to allege that testers were not paid accurately for overtime work, and that some testers "were not receiving at least minimum wage for compensation." In addition, Take-Two allegedly denied testers required meal and rest breaks, and failed to provide required payment when those breaks were missed.

The court is currently determining whether enough testers were affected by these allegations to constitute a legal class action, ahead of a planned March 2012 court date.

Those with questions about their potential participation in the suit should contact Gilardi and Co. LLC at 1-877-267-8761, or e-mail taketwo@classactmail.com.
