Jurist OKs IBM's $65 Million Wage Settlement
Alison D. Morantz, a professor at Stanford Law School, had not reviewed the case, but she said that such a large settlement will probably create a stir.
"Other companies are going to be looking to this probably saying, 'Wait a second, are we going to be on the hook for misclassified employees?" Morantz said.
"It's notoriously tricky issue to regulate," she said of employee classification procedures. "It's a tough issue that's always been politically controversial."
