Take-Two sued by QA tester

By Steve Watts, Aug 31, 2011 7:15pm PDT

Take-Two Interactive is being sued by a member of a subsidiary Quality Assurance tester. The Plaintiff, Aaron Martinez, claims that while working at California-based Visual Concepts, Take-Two did not provide meal and rest breaks, did not pay for all the hours worked, and didn't pay due wages when employees were terminated. Take-Two denies all of the allegations, claiming that it did provide breaks and paid all of the correct compensation.

The documentation on NeoGAF was provided by a former tester, allowing him to opt-out of being put on the contact list for the Plaintiff and his attorneys. This would be used if the case becomes a class action suit, but the court hasn't determined yet if it will.

The timing for a potentially costly lawsuit could be better, as Take-Two recently reported a Q1 loss.

Shacknews has contacted Take-Two to confirm the veracity of the memo. A representative confirmed the authenticity of the suit, but noted: "We are not commenting beyond the documentation."
