We recently reported that a judge rules that a firm had violated federal and New York minimum wage laws by not paying interns for their work, which would clear the path for  upcoming class action lawsuits against companies engaging in unfair labor practices.

It seems that interns working for MSNBC and Saturday Night Live  have joined the class action lawsuit, seeking unpaid wages for those who worked at the company in the past three years.

The avalanche of lawsuits on the internship front keeps coming.

The latest is a proposed class action against NBCUniversal from Jesse Moore, who says he worked 24-hour-or-more weeks in the booking department at MSNBC in 2011, and Monet Eliastam, who says she worked 25-hour-or-more weeks on the staff of Saturday Night Live in 2012.

They are being represented by Outten & Golden, the same law firm that represented two former Black Swan interns in a summary judgment win against Fox Searchlight last month.

According to the complaint, “By misclassifying Plaintiffs and hundreds of workers as unpaid or underpaid interns, NBCUniversal has denied them the benefits that the law affords to employees, including unemployment, workers’ compensation insurance, social security contributions, and, most crucially, the right to earn a fair day’s wage for a fair day’s work.”

The plaintiffs believe that the amount of money in controversy exceeds $5 million.

The latest lawsuit adds to the growing intern-lawsuit canon. In recent weeks, Conde Nast, Gawker, Warner Music and others have been sued for allegedly violating the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay minimum wage to interns. The timing of these lawsuits is no coincidence after the Fox litigation broke ground on the subject. Since then, Hollywood attorneys have been preparing.

This class action against NBCU alleging violations of the FLSA and New York Labor Laws estimates hundreds of interns in the proposed class. The complaint seeks unpaid wages, interest, and attorneys fees and costs for interns who worked at NBCUniversal between July 3, 2010, and the date of a final judgment.

Justin Swartz, attorney for the plaintiffs, says, “We hope that this case will send a clear message that private companies cannot rely on unpaid interns to perform entry-level work that contributes to operations and reduces their labor costs. Our clients and other unpaid interns seem to have been as integral to NBCUniversal’s business as other employees, but are different in a crucial way — NBCUniversal didn’t pay them.”
