EA Employees Upset About Working Conditions

“Following a tip from an informed source, GameSpot contacted Attorney Robert C. Schubert, partner at San Francisco law firm Schubert & Reed LLP. He said that he has initiated legal proceedings to start a class action lawsuit on behalf of a group of EA employees. “We are seeking unpaid overtime for a good number of [EA] employees who weren’t [properly] paid,” Schubert told GameSpot this afternoon. “EA contends they were exempt,” Schubert said. “We contend otherwise.”
