WTH? I just received the 3rd notice in 2 years of a class action lawsuit against a former employer.
Was I for some reason bouncing from one dishonest company to another?
I realize I have had a lot, and so statistically that ups the chances a little, and also that this is a very litigation happy place (owing to our severe lack of meaningful regulations and enforcement). And it shouldn't be all that surprising, given that the ultimate goal of any corporation is, by law, maximization of profit, which means that even following the law becomes a matter of calculating potential loss vs. potential gain: 10 years of unpaid overtime may be worth a 4 or 5 million dollar lawsuit.
I'm just hope I never receive one of those notices for my most recent job. If all the employees of BioDiesel Hauling file suit against the owner, I have some serious problems, and not just the financial ones.
