Apple Stores labor policies reportedly targeted in class action suit

Apple retail stores are the target of a class action lawsuit that alleges that employees went uncompensated during long mandatory security searches according to Business Insider.

The allegations made in this lawsuit are similar to the ones made in a lawsuit filed by two former Apple Store employees in San Francisco federal court earlier this year. However, the current lawsuit is a class action lawsuit that seeks compensation for lost wages for all eligible employees, as well as various civil penalties for labor violations.

Apple presents a model of transparency in its overseas labor policies. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.
