Employment

Sutter Health Medical Center

The complaint for this class action alleges that Sutter Health understaffs some of its facilities, making it difficult or impossible for staff to take their legally-mandated rest and meal breaks. The complaint says employees are also not permitted to record the missed breaks or overtime, and that if they do, Sutter alters their time cards. These things are violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), California state labor laws, and the state’s Industrial Wage Commission Wage Orders.

The complaint for this class action alleges that Target Corporation misclassified some of its employees as exempt from overtime and other legal labor requirements.

The laws referenced are state laws—primarily the California Labor Law and the state’s Industrial Welfare Commission (WC) Wage Orders.

Charter Communications Sign in Dry Landscape

One violation of labor laws can create a ripple effect of other violations. If an employer has misclassified a worker as exempt (from overtime pay), for example, that may indicate a whole host of other labor requirements that the employer has therefore not observed. The complaint for this class action alleges that Charter Communications, LLC did not properly classify some of its workers under California law and therefore owes them for overtime, missed breaks, waiting time penalties, and other things.

Veterans often come home from war with PTSD and other invisible but real effects of their service.

The complaint names as defendants the Secretary of the Army, Secretary of the Navy, and the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Advocate Health Care Facility

The Advocate Health Care Network has a Disability Income Protection Plan that provides funds for employees who have a long- or short-term disability and are unable to work because of sickness or injury. The plan coordinates its own benefits with benefits paid by other parties, such as Social Security. However, complaint for this class action alleges that the Plan refuses to recognize the common fund doctrine, which allows participants to recover any legal or other expenses they incur in obtaining those benefits.

When a company sells a division of itself, can it simply sign away accrued employee benefits that they will not have with the new owner?

Target Name and Bullseye on Building

This class action is yet another alleging that an employer did not properly calculate or pay overtime for its hourly employees. This time, the employer is Target Corporation. The complaint alleges that the problem is both how the time-and-a-half overtime rate is calculated and the requirement that employees perform off-the-clock duties. It claims violations of both the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act (PMWA).
