DirecTV Wage and Hour Litigation


Several technicians have sued DirecTV, Inc. claiming that DirecTV violated the law by failing to properly pay satellite technicians by: 1) not properly calculating overtime; 2) failing to properly track and record hours worked; 3) not properly compensating technicians for "non-productive" time; and 4) subjecting the technicians to unlawful chargebacks. The court recently conditionally certified this case to proceed as a collective action.

You are eligible to join this lawsuit if:

1. You are currently working or previously worked as a technician for DIRECTV as a W-2 employee for any period of time after January 23, 2011; and

2. You were paid on a "piece rate" basis by DIRECTV, meaning you were paid specific amounts for certain tasks you completed; and

3. You worked more than 40 hours in a week; and

4. You entered into an arbitration agreement with DIRECTV.
