    I got mine in the mail. I am reading it right now. Basically its a lawsuit against Frys relating to:  
     
    (1) failure to pay overtime;  
    (2) failure to pay final wages;  
    (3) waiting time penalties;  
    (4) failure to provide rest periods;  
    (5) failure to allow meal periods;  
    (6) failure to furnish timely and accurate wage statements;  
    (7) unfair and unlawful business acts and practices.  
     
    Fry's denies that it did anything wrong.

    That's a good question. If one works, say, 42* hours in a week, should any commission made in those extra two hours be multiplied by 1.5?  
     
    *So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Sasquatch:Interesting, but...  
    If you file, does Fry's Electronics put your name in a little red book? Basically, would our illustrious employer know whether or not a certain individual participated in this suit?  
     
    If not, surely they would get ideas when you request documentation showing which weeks you've earned overtime. I doubt anyone has complete records dating back to when they were first employed. Unfortunately, said documentation is required for eligibility in the suit.  
     
    How will they calculate one's share of the booty?

    I am not participating in the settlement I am actually going to object to the settlement:  
     
    Fry's didn't pay my vacation check in a timely matter and never paid me for my personal and holiday days off. They also failed to furnish timely and accurate wage statements; and unfair and unlawful business acts and practices.  
     
    Fry's fired me for creating this website (http://www.FrysForum.com) where employees could talk about their work related conditions and grievances. We were trying to bring our work related grievances to the attention of management. Fry's found out I was the owner of the website and decided to hold me countable for the content of the site.  
     
    According to Section 230 of Title 47 of the United States Code (47 USC § 230) site owners or operators can not be held responsible for the content left by members on their site. I did not post or write the things Fry's is accusing me of doing listed on the links below. Fry's firing me was illegal and violates the National Labor Relations Act because 2 or more employees were discussing pay or other work related issues with each other and 2 or more employees are addressing their employer about improving their working conditions or pay.  
     
    I have filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board which is part of the United States Goverment http://www.NLRB.gov Fry's has not responded to my charge.  
     
    I was also denied unemployment benifits because according to the California Unemployment office I was "making disparaging remarks about your employeer" even though it wasn't me making the disparaging remarks but some users on the site. I am appealing this decision and I await my court date with the EDD.

    I seriously doubt that. Most Fry's associates have no idea this exists. Add the fact that you must submit documentation proving the number of weeks you earned overtime... well, I doubt there will be many takers.

    Don't be quick to decide to settle consider this  
     
    1) You Settle :(After Fee's $1,778,834 will be split amongs thousands of employees which include current and former employees which means you could get as little as a couple hundread dollars or even less)  
    2) Do Nothing: You won't recieve any payments from the settlement and you give up your rights to sue Fry's for the release claims  
    3) Ask To Be Excluded: Recieve no payments from the settlement and retain all rights you may have against Fry's.  
    4) Submit Objection: Write to the Aribitrator about you don't agree with the settlement. The Arbitrator may or may not agree with your objection.  
    If you don't agree with the amount they are settling for tell them that or that you think its unfair or anything you want to say to them.  
    5) Go To The Hearing - If you have submitted a valid ojbection and notice of intention to appear, ask to speak before the Arbitrator about the fairness of the settlement.  
     
    I think for retaliation reasons current employees should settle but former or employees who were fired or quit should object its not much money for what Fry's is trying to settle.I belive in Justice ... I will serve it if needed

    Former CSSA/Gopher here. I got the notice a few days ago and it seems like nothing more than a pittance. To even work for the store you have to sign the arbitration contract, they don't put a gun to your head but they won't let you work/pay you if you don't sign. I'm very tempted to go to a hearing over this. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a bitter former employee looking for a dollar or two but Fry's has to answer for the way they've treated us.
