Sales Reps Take Sprint to Court

Alleged computer problems shorted thousands of Sprint Nextel (S) retail sales reps out of an estimated $5 million in commissions, according to a suit filed by the affected employees. The impact is so wide-reaching that the case has been certified as a class-action lawsuit.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs also claim the mobile operator routinely has withheld commissions and makes resolution of shortfall claims difficult.

Sprint has conceded to having computer problems, but denies any systematic effort to avoid paying commissions.

The company has until Dec. 22 to provide a list of all the salesclerks who potentially were affected.
