Lawsuit alleges Apple's employees to be forced to wait in line without pay
August 1 , 2013
Two former Apple retail employees reported they used to be forced to wait in line for their bags to be checked before leaving for lunch break or before leaving for the day. This was done to ensure that employees didn't pocket any merchandise from the store.
Amanda Frlekin and Dean Pelle said these checks that happened twice everyday costed them up to 30 minutes each week, which accounted to overtime without pay. Their lawsuit against the company estimates that each employee that is checked in this matter is being cheated out of $1,500 annually.
This amounts to the cost of Apple'sMacBook Pro with retina display.
