SuperMedia Faces Employment Class Action Lawsuit

- by

Dallas, TX: A class action federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) lawsuit has been filed charging that SuperMedia, Inc., formerly known as Idearc, Inc., wrongfully denied hundreds of inside sales employees overtime compensation over the preceding three year period. Federal law clearly requires that an employee's base salary in addition to all commissions be included in calculating the overtime pay rate for hours worked over 40 in a workweek. However, SuperMedia failed to include sales commissions in the calculation of the overtime pay due its sales employees. Given the number of employees in addition to the time period involved, SuperMedia potentially denied its employees millions of dollars in overtime compensation.

SuperMedia is a publicly traded company that primarily sells print and online advertising to small and medium sized businesses. According to its most recent Form 10-K filing, it is "one of the largest yellow pages directory publishers in the United States as measured by revenue." It also offers "online advertising solutions." Additionally, it offers direct mail services to its customers. SuperMedia advertises that it is "the official publisher of Verizon Communications, Inc. print directories in which Verizon is currently the incumbent local telephone exchange carrier."
