angry tapir writes: "Oracle is set to pay US$35 million to roughly 1,725 workers in order to settle a class-action suit brought against it over overtime pay and meal-break issues dating back to 2003. The employees' suit alleged that Oracle misclassified them as "exempt" workers in violation of California and federal laws regarding overtime pay. Affected employees worked in support, project management and quality assurance for Oracle and PeopleSoft, which the company acquired in 2004."
