This California labor class action makes many familiar allegations against Equinox Holdings, Inc.: failure to pay minimum and overtime wages and failure to allow rest and meal periods, among other things.

These things are violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), California state labor laws, and the state’s Industrial Wage Commission Wage Orders.
