$4M Sutherland Settlement of Overtime Lawsuit Ok'd

Sutherland Global Services Ltd. has settled a class-action lawsuit alleging it didn't pay its call center telemarketers the overtime they were owed.

The lawsuit, filed in 2005 in U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York, was brought by a pair of Rochester employees of the Perinton-based business process outsourcing company.

The suit eventually grew to 10 named employees and hundreds of unnamed workers, who claimed they regularly worked more than 40 hours a week but were not paid overtime.

Sutherland denied the allegations. But the company agreed in July to a $4 million settlement to be divided among members of the class. Under the settlement, Sutherland did not admit any violation of law.

U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer last week gave final approval to the settlement, ending the litigation.
