Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Sued By People It Pays To Watch

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) hires people to watch its programs, who are then required to choose the best still images and videos to aptly represent many of its offerings, and the process is known as “Project Beetlejuice.” The job appears cool. However, the Hollywood Reporter reports that two of the people hired for the process are now suing the streaming company.

Class-action lawsuits against Netflix

Netflix has two putative class-action lawsuits filed against it in California. Lawrence Moss, a Long Beach resident, filed one of them in November, while Los Angeles resident Cigdem Akbay filed the other in May, the website says.

Moss and Akbay argue that the members of the secret “Project Beetlejuice” often had to work for more than 40 hours a week and therefore should be paid more money than the $10-a-program fee. They also claim that they had been mis-categorized as contractors instead of employees. The two are asking for overtime, holidays, health insurance, paid vacation and a 401(k) plan, the report says.

Akbay said that on a regular basis, she used to work more than 40 hours a week with a “rigid work schedule” that company deadlines dictated. In 2014, she was fired after she told the company’s management that “Project Beetlejuice” had become her primary source of income.
