Nationwide Overtime Pay Class Action Lawsuit For HP Technical Workers Filed Today, Class Counsel Announce

Attorney Jahan C. Sagafi of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, and Adam T. Klein of Outten & Golden LLP announced the filing today of a class action lawsuit charging that Hewlett-Packard Company ("HP") (NYSE: HPQ) has a common practice of misclassifying its technical support workers as exempt and failing to pay them for all overtime hours worked in violation of federal overtime pay laws. HP employs several thousand technical support workers nationwide. Many of these employees worked at smaller companies, such as Autonomy, Palm, Electronic Data Systems (EDS), 3Com, ArcSight, and 3PAR, that have recently been acquired by HP.

“HP’s success and substantial revenue come from the hard work and long hours of its technical support workers, who keep information technology infrastructure up and running,” stated plaintiff Eric Benedict. “HP should not be allowed to underpay these workers in violation of the law.”

Plaintiff’s counsel Jahan Sagafi noted, “This lawsuit seeks fair compensation for the thousands of HP technical workers who form the backbone of the company. Their tireless overtime work, which we allege has been unpaid, has helped fuel HP’s success.”

HP’s technical support workers, who work in titles such as Technical Solutions Consultants, Technical Solutions Representatives, Technical Support Engineers, and Senior Technical Support Engineers, among others, are responsible for installing, maintaining, and/or supporting computer software and hardware. The lawsuit alleges that these workers were unlawfully denied overtime pay.

Current and former HP employees who perform hardware or software installation, maintenance, or support work who wish to report their work experiences or learn more about the lawsuit should visit www.HPOTpay.com. The web page allows witnesses and employees interested in protecting their rights to contact plaintiffs’ counsel. A short video summarizing the case can also be seen on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z64tRhMXgN0

The lawsuit, entitled Benedict v. Hewlett-Packard Company, Case No. 13-0119, was filed in United States District Court in San Francisco, California.
