Responding to a class-action lawsuit filed by former employees in September 2007, KPMG has decided to implement a formal way to redress employees for unpaid overtime.

The $20-million lawsuit said supervisors at the audit, tax and advisory services company regularly required employees to work 90-hour weeks while only billing clients for 60 hours.
