Paizo employs Venture-Captains, Venture-Lieutenants, Venture-Agents, and Game Masters, among others, to perform various tasks on behalf of the company. For instance, Venture-Lieutenants attend mandatory meetings, represent Paizo at events, and answer questions by potential and current customers. Plaintiff alleged that Paizo deliberately failed to pay these employees their earned wages and overtime compensation.
