Just what HP (HPQ) needs: Another public relations headache! Business Insider reports that some HP tech support employees are suing the company for allegedly having them work more than 40 hours a week and then failing to deliver overtime pay. Plaintiff Eric Benedict, an HP employee, is alleging that the company intentionally “misclassified” workers “so that they wouldn’t qualify for extra pay.” An HP spokesperson told Business Insider that the company is “reviewing the complaint” but has no specific comment on it at this time.
