A California law firm, Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik, has filed a class action lawsuit against AT&T in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, alleging that the wireless phone giant has violated the rights of at-home virtual call center employees under the California Labor Code. The lawsuit claims that AT&T hired the at-home call center employees to provide billing and technical support for AT&T customers, while devising an illegal scheme of mislabeling these employees as independent contractors in order to avoid workers' compensation costs as well as paying state and/or federal taxes.
More details are available at Channel Partners and the San Francisco Chronicle. A copy of the complaint in Sandra Perry v. AT&T, CV 11-1488, can be viewed or downloaded.
