October 05, 2005

In July 2004, a group of Electronic Arts employees sued EA for overtime wages. Under California law, some employees in high-tech jobs are not entitled to overtime pay. The EA employees in this case argued that they were not exempted by the law, and therefore they were owed millions in overtime pay.

EA has now agreed to settle the lawsuit by paying the former employees $15.6 million to cover their overtime claims and legal fees. The settlement will become effective if it is approved by the court.
