Six managers have filed a class action suit for unpaid overtime, under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). They seek to have managers denied overtime since 2003 because they were classified under the FLSA as 'executive, administrative, or professional capacity" to opt into the class action and obtain redress (including overtime, interest, damages and lawyers' fees).  They claim to have been forced to work 50 to 60 hours a week without proper compensation.

GameStop has asked that the lawsuit be dismissed because of a similar 2004 case pending against Electronics Boutique.
