Verizon Wireless successfully defeats class certification in California wage and hour class action
Client(s) Verizon Wireless, Inc.
Jones Day represented Verizon Wireless in a wage and hour class action in which the plaintiff alleges that the Company did not provide required meal and rest breaks for its California retail store employees, did not reimburse its California employees for all business-related mileage expenses, and did not reimburse its California employees for expenses associated with the business use of their concession phones. The court denied Plaintiffs' motion for class certification in its entirety.
