call centerCogent Communications continues to face a lawsuit for allegedly failing to pay overtime to its account managers.  The class action lawsuit, Valverde v. Cogent Communications, Inc., Case No. 113CV239322, was filed by Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik, a San Francisco law firm and is currently pending in the Santa Clara County Superior Court for the State of California.

Cogent is one of the world's largest Internet Service Providers serving 180 markets in 36 countries.  According to the lawsuit, the petitioner, Christopher Valverde, and other similarly situated current and former Account Managers deliberately and intentionally misclassified its Account Managers as administrative exempt workers for the sole purpose to avoid paying the Account Managers overtime pay.  According to the Fair Labor Standards Act and California Labor Law, workers who work in excess of 40 hours per week or 8 hours per day are payable at one and a half times their regular hourly pay rate.
