Employment Violations

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).

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 brings suit under California Labor Law and Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Orders.

Sign and Logo on Sprint Store

This class action brings suit against Sprint/United Management Co. for allegedly failing to follow California Labor Code and Industrial Wage Orders in the treatment of certain of its workers.
