On July 3, 2013, Outten & Golden LLP filed a Class Action Complaint in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against NBCUniversal on behalf of two former NBCUniversal interns. The complaint alleges that NBCUniversal violated federal and state labor laws by failing to pay proper wages to interns who performed productive work on its television programs and in other parts of its multi-media enterprise. These workers are owed the applicable minimum wage rate for all hours worked and spread of hours pay on days on which they worked more than 10 hours. Outten & Golden will seek to have the lawsuit certified as a class action to recover unpaid wages, liquidated damages, interest and attorneys’ fees for interns who worked for NBCUniversal between July 3, 2007 and the date of a final judgment.
