SHARE Groupon sales rep denied class-action overtime suit

Groupon Inc. sales representatives cannot sue the ecommerce company for overtime pay as a single group, a federal judge in Chicago says. The judge refused to combine the cases into a class-action lawsuit because there were too many sales reps with different duties to treat them all the same, according to a Reuters report. The Chicago-based company said it was pleased with the ruling.
