One of our clients was being sued by several former employees who claimed unpaid wages and missed meal breaks. The Plaintiffs were trying to convert their case to a class action. If they won, the class could have included more than 200 individuals, with potential liability in excess of $6,000,000. The Plaintiffs brought a motion to certify the class action before Judge Ronald Sohigian in Los Angeles Superior Court. Judge Sohigian adopted many of the arguments raised by De Castro & Morrow in their opposition to the Plaintiffs’ motion and ruled that the case should not be a class action. We are extremely proud of this result. And the client is pretty happy too!
If your company is being sued for failing to properly pay wages, De Castro & Morrow can help. Better yet, let us counsel you on how to implement policies that can help prevent these types of claims from being made. Call or e-mail with any concerns you may have about how to properly pay employees. Let’s be proactive together.
