Newegg, the online computer retailer, violates a slew of labor laws, overworks and abuses immigrant workers and orders employees to hack into competitors' computer systems, three former employees claim in Superior Court. The plaintiffs say Newegg hires a disproportionate number of Chinese tech workers, many with false promises that Newegg would help them get green cards, then forces them to work egregiously long hours without breaks. "These employees were so profoundly overworked that they were frequently seen napping at their work stations," the complaint states.
