ST. LOUIS - A Missouri federal judge on May 17 conditionally certified a class of phone company sales representatives who allege that they are owed overtime pay, finding that the two-phase procedure for class certification is appropriate, even though the Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has not addressed the issue for Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) claims (Kyle O'Donnell, et al. v. Southwestern Bell Yellow Pages, Inc., No. 4:11-cv-1107, E.D. Mo.; 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 68960).
