Bad, Bad Borders

The Sun-Times reported last week that Borders bookstore in Oak Park was ordered by a federal judge to reinstate a wrongfully fired employee and to pay the employee more than $300,000 for unpaid overtime and "time and expenses lost due to the company's retaliation against her." The employee, Clarice Prange, "worked 4,170 hours of unpaid overtime from 2001 to 2004 in hopes of winning a promotion and on the promise of compensatory time off." Way to go, Borders.
