GameStop to Pay $3.25 Million for Having Employees Work Off-The-Clock

Video game and software retailer GameStop agreed to pay $3.25 million as part of a settlement reached in a class action lawsuit filed by former employee Dario Barrera. The complaint alleged that Game Stop required class members to work off-the-clock, resulting in unpaid straight time and overtime. The United States District Court for the Central District of California approved Barrera as the class representative, with the law firms of Kesluk, Silverstein & Jacob and the Law Offices of Alisa Goukasian serving as Class Counsel.

Barrera also alleged that GameStop failed to provide meal and rest breaks, failed to pay wages timely upon class members’ termination and failed to provide accurate itemized wage statements showing the actual hours worked. Barrera sought to maintain a class action for his claims on behalf of himself and all persons who are or have been employed by GameStop as store managers, assistant managers, or senior game advisors in California. GameStop denies any liability or wrongdoing of any kind in connection with Barrera’s claims.
