AirTouch Cellular decision affirmed by California Court of Appeals

Client(s) Verizon Wireless

Jones Day represented AirTouch Cellular, doing business as 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. On May 24, 2011, the court denied Plaintiffs' motion for class certification in its entirety. On February 4, 2013, after Brinker, the California Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court's decision in full.
