Court Denies Class Action in Temp Case

December 27 2011

A federal court in California denied class action status to a lawsuit against a staffing firm, according to the latest edition of the Legs & Regs Advisor released by Staffing Industry Analysts in conjunction with employment law firm Littler Mendelson. The suit claimed call center workers were required to arrive 10 minutes early without being compensated for that time. It also claimed workers were required to round the times they started and ended work to the nearest 15-minute interval and that company policies required workers to round the number in the employer’s favor.

However, the court found that individual workers rounded their time reports in different ways, causing discrepancies over when workers were told to arrive, when they did arrive and what start times they reported to the staffing firm, according to the Legs & Regs Advisor. As a result, it didn't certify the case as a class action.

Corporate members of Staffing Industry Analysts can read the full report on the case in the North American Contingent Workforce Legs & Regs Advisor.

Other legal and legislative updates in the advisor include:

  • California temp files action for late wages
  • Colorado partners with U.S. Department of Labor to target misclassification
  • Ohio PEO bill passes state senate
