CBS fails to pay workers that secure film sets proper overtime, a new class action suit charges. The suit filed in Manhattan Federal Court by three parking production assistants says they were paid a flat rate between $140 and $160 for a 12-hour shift.
About a year and a half ago a petition for rulemaking was filed proposing that the FCC allow lawyers to file class actions on behalf of complainants. Rather than summarily reject the petition, the commission invited public comments on it. And now, 19 months down the line, the FCC has tossed the petition.
