Intern lawsuit against Warner Music could become class action

The plaintiffs have been granted the right to extend the invitation to over 3,000 people to join in suing the company.

Companies have been significantly more leery in the last few years about employing unpaid interns as the numbers of lawsuits associated with them have risen steadily since 2012. But for some, it may be too late, and they are now embroiled in wage and treatment legal action that has turned heads. Warner Music has been one of the most spotlighted companies since 2013, with a lead plaintiff, but others are now claiming that the working conditions of the internship program violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Kyle Grant is the primary suer, and he and other ex-interns have now been granted the right to alert over 3,000 other people who could potentially gather behind the cases to form a class in the lawsuit.
