Employment

Kuehne + Nagel Name and Anchor Logo

This is an all-too-common type of employment case, in which a company operating in California is accused of violating California labor law and IWC wage orders. In this class action, the complaint alleges that Kuehne + Nagel, Inc. did not pay proper wages and overtime or allow workers the required rest and meal breaks, and that in so doing, it violated additional “downstream” labor laws, such as the requirement to pay all wages at termination.

Russian Goods Sold at Food Palace

Food Palace is a restaurant and gourmet food store in New York City located on Broadway at West 192nd Street. The complaint for this class action brings suit against the business (under its official name, M&V International Food, Inc.) and the two individuals who own and operate it, alleging that the company has violated the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the New York Labor Law (NYLL).

This class action takes issue with the all-too-common requirement that workers perform certain preparatory and finishing-up activities before they begin recording time for their shifts. The defendant is the PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., and the workers are employed at PNC Customer Care Centers.

High-Heeled Platform Shoes in Pink and Green Stage Lighting

Workers are often forced to pay fees for business expenses and other things that they shouldn’t be paying, but it seems that female entertainers at “gentlemen’s clubs” are particularly susceptible to this kind of exploitation. The complaint for this class action takes issue with certain charges entertainers were forced to pay out of what they earned at Mardi Gras Entertainment, Inc. and its related clubs, Center Stage (Bino, Inc.), Anthony’s Dance Club, Inc., and Fifth Alarm, Inc. in Massachusetts.

Stethescope with Sensor Rearing Up Like a Cobra

When the employee of a large company separates from that company because of a “qualifying event,” they are permitted to carry over their health care coverage for a period of time, under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA). However, the complaint for this class action alleges that Best Buy Co., Inc. or Best Buy, LP does not provide employees with a COBRA notice that complies with the law.

A2B Cargo Trucks

It’s not unusual for truck drivers to come to an independent contractor agreement to move loads for a carrier or logistics company. However, the complaint for this class action alleges that A2B Cargo, Inc., A2B Cargo Logistics, Inc., KSM Carrier Group, Inc., and Lincoln State Leasing, LLC entered into agreements that exploited the drivers and did not properly lay out the terms of the agreements as required by law. 

Hyatt Logo on Top of Building

There’s a tendency to think that large, famous companies are better about compliance with labor laws, either because they can afford it or because they have a reputation to uphold. The complaint for this class action, however, alleges that the Hyatt Corporation has violated California Labor Law in numerous ways. 

ABB Logo

This class action tells an old story—the alleged failure of an employer to pay workers for overtime hours. The employer in question is ABB Motors and Mechanical, Inc. and the complaint brings suit under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Arkansas Minimum Wage Act (AMWA).

Building Being Constructed with Steel Frame

Barone Steel, Inc. is a construction and steel fabrication company located in Brooklyn, New York. The complaint for this class action brings suit against it under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and New York Labor Law (NYLL). Along with making the usual allegations of lack of proper overtime pay and proper wage statements, the complaint also claims that improper deductions were made from employee pay and that fraudulent information was supplied to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Circle K Store

This class action takes up the plight of store employees, particularly those who work solo shifts, who are not given their proper meal and rest breaks by their employers. The complaint also alleges that Circle K Stores, Inc. in California practice “time shaving,” whereby employee timecards are changed in order to save Circle K money. The complaint brings suit under California Labor Law and Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Orders.
