Los Angeles County defends against putative wage and hour class action

Clients Los Angeles County

Jones Day represented Los Angeles County in a putative wage and hour class action involving claims of failure to provide meal periods as required by the California Labor Code. In a case of first impression, trial court decided that County employees are exempt from the meal period requirements of the California Labor Code because the County is a Charter County. Court of Appeal affirmed in a published opinion (166 Cal.App.4th 1276 (2008)) and California Supreme Court denied Plaintiff's petition for review.
