UNPAID DETENTION?: A lawsuit filed by two people formerly employed in Apple's stores alleges the maker of the iPhone and the iPad shortchanged them and their co-workers by requiring remain to remain on the premises until their bags and personal belongings could be searched. The anti-theft measures resulted in the hourly workers spending extra time in the store without pay, according to the lawsuit.

BROAD SCOPE: The complaint seeks to be certified as a class action representing thousands of workers in Apple Inc.'s U.S. stores.

THE STAKES: The law suit asserts the store workers should have been paid an additional $1,400 to $1,500 annually.
