Cathy Birdsong v. AT&T


Update: Case Did not Proceed As Class action

While we had been hopeful that we would be able to pursue this matter as a class action, that did not work out.

We regret this turn of events. However, if you believe you might have been a possible member of this case had it been a class action, you should feel free to take your own action, including seeking out an attorney to represent you on an individual basis.

We thank all of you who tried to assist us in these efforts. If we file any class action case involving this job position in the future, we will post it on this website.


We have recently again joined with the Righetti Glogoski Law Offices in representing AT&T employees in another claim for unpaid wages and other damages. .

A proposed class-action lawsuit has been filed by Cathy Birdsong ("Plaintiff") Against AT&T Corp., AT&T Services, Inc., AT&T Management Services, LP, AT&T Operations, Inc., Yellowpages.com, AT&T Mobility Services, LLC (“Defendant”), on behalf of employees who worked for Defendants in California in its business unit "INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY" who were informed , at any time during the four years preceding the filing of the lawsuit on April 3, 2012. The case was filed in Alamdea County Superior Court, as Cathy Birdsong v. AT&T Corp., etc., as Case No. RG12654472 (a copy of the complaint is attached). It has since been removed to the United States District Court, Northern District of California, and is now referenced as Case No. C12-617.

In this lawsuit, filed on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff Birdsong contends that AT&T did not comply with the requirements under California law for payment of wages. If successful, a class action allows former and current employees to receive back wages that are owed to them.

The court has not yet ruled on any of Plaintiff's allegations or determined whether the case is appropriate for class action status.

Defendant AT&T claims that approximately 373 employees in various positions in Information Technology BUsiness Units in California changed from exempt to non-exempt status since October 1, 2008.
