California employment law attorney Patrick Keegan, co-founder and managing partner of Keegan & Baker, LLP, obtains Certification of a Class of Employees of Allie’s Party Equipment Rental, Inc.
On February 8, 2019, the San Diego Superior Court entered a minute order granting the three plaintiffs’ motion certifying a class of persons employed by Allie’s Party Equipment Rental, Inc. at any time from January 31, 2013, through September 1, 2017 (Flores, et al. v. Allie's Party Equipment Rental, Inc.; Barrett Business Services, Inc.; and Michael B. Nicholson, Case No. 37-2017-00003817-CU-OB-NC). Keegan, an accomplished California employment law attorney, was appointed co-lead class counsel for the plaintiff class.
According to court documents, the plaintiffs have alleged “that defendants failed to comply with California labor laws by failing to authorize, permit, and/or provide all required meal and rest periods (or pay premium wages in lieu thereof), by unlawfully deducting pay for time actually worked, by failing to timely pay final wages upon termination or resignation, and by failing to provide properly itemized wage statements, all in violation of the California Labor Code and the relevant IWC Wage Order.”
“In their lawsuit, the plaintiffs seek a recovery for unpaid wages and missed meal and rest periods on behalf of themselves and all other employees in the Class,” said Keegan.
However, according to court documents, the defendants deny the alleged violations of the California Labor Code, and any alleged damages suffered by the plaintiffs.
