Interplay progress report

The vast network of NMA spies reports that Herve continues to run Interplay into the ground.
I understand they are going to pay the 6/1 and 6/15, but as before it will be on work hours. Vivendi was, and still is, involved in several lawsuits for paying salary employees for each hour worked with out truly converting to a hourly system where people get paid extra for more than 40 hours in a week or 8 hours in a day. It must be a French thing.
As a result, Herve now several more lawsuits on his hands for not paying overtime or shorting people since inaccurate records were kept regarding work hours for salary employees, and continuing to not pay for dental and optical. You'd think he'd learn to stop cutting corners. Saving a nickel to spend a dime is the hallmark of an 80's corporate officer and only continues to perpetuate the image of an arrogant executive will thinks he knows what he doing, but doesn't.
I also heard from several sources that he is opening up a very small office space in Newport Beach for the sole purpose of meeting clients. From my conversations, Herve has no plans to ever produce new products again. No more tech support, no more hints, no more message boards, nothing. The Interplay we all knew is gone, never to return. Interplay is going to be just a shell for "Herve Cean presents Fallout: Online" project.
And they say that the French aren't evil...
