Employment Violations

Large Array of Keurig-Dr. Pepper Products

The American Bottling Company is a subsidiary of Keurig-Dr. Pepper, Inc., and this class action brings suit against both of them for violations of California Labor laws. The complaint’s allegations include failure to provide proper meal and rest breaks and failure to pay minimum and overtime wages.

This settlement resolves two cases brought against Uber Technologies, Inc. claiming that drivers should be classified as employees rather than independent contractors.

Paper with Heading "401(k) Statement"

Do you live in California and work for a company with more than 500 employees? Do you participate in its 401(k) or other retirement plan? Retirement plans for such large companies are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), and they must meet certain requirements. However, not all of them do—and that may eventually affect how much money you have to retire on.

Pension plans have certain requirements as to payouts under federal laws. The complaint for this class action claims that Anheuser-Busch Companies, LLC (AB) did not meet these requirements, because it used an old actuarial table that does not accord with current life expectancy figures.

Three workers in protective gear performing industrial cleaning

Three plaintiffs bring this labor action under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Arkansas Minimum Wage Act (AMWA). The primary issue is the time workers spent putting on extensive protective gear required for their jobs with Thompson Industrial Services, LLC and what effect that time has on their paychecks.

Building for Pioneer Natural Resources

Pioneer Natural Resources USA, Inc. and other parties responsible for the company’s 401(k) plan have agreed to a settlement that claims they have violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). The complaint alleged that the company and other defendants acted improperly, in a way that caused plan participants to pay excessive fees for recordkeeping services.

Neon Sign at Seventh Veil Club

This settlement resolves a lawsuit brought by a former dancer against 7180 Sunset Blvd., Inc. and Three Group, Inc. under employment laws. The complaint claimed that the companies misclassified dancers, who performed at Seventh Veil, Royal Palace (Star Strip), or Crazy Girls, as independent contractors when they were actually employees.

An Amazon Fulfillment Center

If employees are injured in the course of their duties, should they then be fired because they can’t perform those duties any longer? The complaint for this class action alleges that Amazon.com Services, Inc. and its warehouse partner Golden State FC, LLC refused to reassign employees to other duties when they had injuries or disabilities, and that the companies discriminated against older employees.

Fidelity Logo

Participants in 401(k) plans must often pay fees to the mutual funds they invest in. The complaint for this class action alleges that various Fidelity companies required kickbacks from the mutual funds in its retirement plans, which then increased fees or decreased profits for the funds. The complaint claims that these secret payments violate the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).
