The National Labor Relations Board has upheld a Florida judge’s ruling against Samsung, saying that it can’t force employees to waive their rights to file class-action suits.
The NLRB said that employees can’t be told that hiring agreements mean they sign away “their right to maintain employment-related joint, class, or collective actions in all forums.” See more at the National Law Journal.
The situation came about after a sales manager filed a class-action suit against Samsung for failing to pay overtime.
