—NPR's Wendy Kaufman reports Taco Bell has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit filed by workers who say the company didn't pay them for overtime. The settlement affects thousands of employees who worked in Washington state between February 1992 and March 1997. The workers will submit individual claims for back pay. If Taco Bell denies a claim, an independent arbitrator will decide the amount owed. If all the claims are found to be valid, Taco Bell could be forced to pay more than 10 million dollars.
