« "California Workers Gain Longer Back-Pay Window" | Main | More news coverage of Murphy v. Kenneth Cole »

Tuesday, April 17, 2007



How do other employees in a similar situation with a large company in Los Angeles get a lawyer? Most lawyers in Los Angeles want open and shut cases that will settle in 30 days.

At my last company, on average there were 150 workers per day that were denied lunch breaks, not paid for time they took to clean the desks and set up for each days work shift.

This company is huge and earns $44 million per year and pays its employees pennies, is very abusive, and shorts us per paycheck by their own admission and they only for the shift hour with their alleged breaks in place bi-weekly. So if a staffer works from 9:30 am to 6:00 signed up shift and doesn't get a lunhc break; that money is still taken out of the employees paycheck.

If the employee works from 8:30 am to 7:00 pm and the actual shift is set for 9:30 am to 6:00 pm the employee is to donate the other hours to the company as an act of kindness to keep his or her job.

A major newspaper did a story on this cmpany in California and it was intimated that they are comitting fraud as well and forcing staffers to commit that on their behalf.
