MLB Advanced Media, L.P.

This lawsuit seeks to recover unpaid overtime compensation for MLBAM employees who were paid a combination of hourly and piece rate pay. The lawsuit alleges that MLBAM violated federal and New York wage law by failing to credit workers and pay them full overtime premium pay for time spent performing tasks associated with their piece rate work such as, for example, time spent "logging" and "cutting" video footage of Major League Baseball games.

It is anticipated that MLBAM will deny violating any laws.

The Judge has not decided who will win the lawsuit.
