Los Angeles Superior Court Case No. BC473093 Pending in front of the Hon. Judge Jane L. Johnson.
Ms.Alvarez and her fellow salaried employees had their salaries when their employer instituted a furlough day policy. California law requires, with a few exceptions, that all exempt employees (those who do not need to be paid overtime) must be salaried, and thus must be paid the same amount regardless of the hours worked during a day, or week, or month. Thus, Plaintiff alleges that when her salary was reduced because she was furloughed, she was no longer exempt from overtime compensation and should receive payment for the numerous overtime hours worked, but were not paid for.
Alameda Superior Court Case No. RG14742027 Pending in front of the Hon. Judge Wynne Carvill.
Plaintiffs were employed by Eagle Systems International, Inc., (also known as Synergy), as technicians and who were employed to install energy efficient products in residences throughout the State of California. While they were paid for the installation of these products, such as weather stripping, energy efficient light fixtures, etc., Plaintiffs allege they were not paid for time spent on administrative tasks and travel time to and from various worksites because they were paid only for those products that they installed, which is known as piece-rate compensation. California law allows for piece rate compensation so long as the employee is paid for all hours worked. Here, Plaintiffs allege that they were not paid for their time spent on job preparation, administrative tasks, and travel time.

Discrimination based on race, gender, color, national origin, disability, age, and sexual orientation is treating a group of people differently and not treating them as individuals. Discrimination can occur at the workplace, when looking for housing, or in the use of public facilities. If the discrimination affects enough people, a class action is appropriate.
