RadioShack Found Liable in Pennsylvania Overtime Lawsuit

RadioShack Corp., the electronics retailer that could run short on cash next year, was found by a federal judge to have violated Pennsylvania law for calculating overtime wages.

While RadioShack’s calculations comply with baseline federal regulations, they violate the state’s more expansive Minimum Wage Act, which requires compensating workers for overtime at 1 1/2 times the basic rate, U.S. District Judge Mitchell S. Goldberg in Philadelphia ruled today. RadioShack said last year that it faces at least $5.8 million in claims for unpaid overtime in the Pennsylvania case.
