In Oracle Wage and Hour Cases, involving four lawsuits in a coordinated proceeding against Oracle, the Superior Court for the County of Alameda certified a class of about 3,000 Oracle employees who allege they were misclassified as exempt from overtime and owed unpaid overtime pay. The classes include technical and service analysts, project managers, and quality assurance analysts and developers. The plaintiffs also allege they were deprived of breaks, and owed penalties for unpaid wages, untimely payment of wages, and inaccurate wage statements. Class certification does not decide the merits of the case, and Oracle will still have an opportunity to establish the claimed exemptions.
