After multiple similar lawsuits arrived last June, 3,000 former Warner Music Group interns have been approved to file a class action lawsuit against the label. As Digital Music News points out, a New York federal judge approved a lawsuit that claims Warner Music Group violated minimum wage and overtime requirements as well as other Fair Labor Standard Act regulations. The wave of lawsuits was initiated by a single former intern named Kyle Grant back in July, whose suit claims that “during the Plaintiffs term of employment, his duties primarily consisted of answering telephones, making photocopies, making deliveries, creating lists, preparing coffee, getting lunch for paid employees, running personal errands for paid employees, and other similar duties.”

If the group of former interns win the suit, WMG could face a multimillion dollar backpay payout as well as forced changes to its change its intern employment rules. You can find the filed complaint here.
