Actionlink Wage Case
Complaint
Opinion and Order in favor of Plaintiffs re: Outside Sales Exemption

Based on our investigation of Actionlink, we believe the company has failed to pay employees, such as those holding the positon "Brand Advocate" for all hours worked; misclassified Brand Advocates as exempt from overtime when in fact they were non-exempt employees who should have received overtime; failed/fails to pay employees at least minimum wage for all hours worked or overtime rates for overtime work; failed/fails to provide employees with proper meal, rest, and/or compensate them an additional hour of premium pay for missed/improper meal and rest periods; and failed/fails to reimburse employees for all business expenses incurred. The claims seek compensation from the period of September 19, 2008 to the present.

Adecco Wage Case
Complaint

Based on investigation of Adecco, we believe Adecco required its hourly "Store Operators" or persons who held similar job titles to report to work and, upon reporting to work, the employees were either not actually put to work or were furnished with less than half of their usual or scheduled day's work. We believe that when this occurred, the employee was not compensated according to California's "reporting time" law that requires the employees in these types of situations to be paid for half the usual or scheduled day's work, but in no event for less than two hours nor more than four hours, at his or her regular rate of pay. The case alleges that Adecco failed/fails to pay the required reporting time pay; failed to pay employees at least minimum wage for all hours worked or overtime rates for overtime work; failed/fails to provide employees with proper rest breaks and/or compensate Complainant and similarly situated aggrieved employees an additional hour of premium pay for missed/improper rest breaks; and failed/fails to reimburse employees for all business expenses incurred. The claims seek compensation from the period of August 18, 2011 to the present.

BDS Marketing Wage Case
Complaint

A former employee, John Mulligan, settled a class action on behalf of: Any individual employed in California on an hourly basis as a flex force trainer, flex force assisted sales representative, and/or merchandizing specialist during the Class Period. The Mulligan case alleged that BDS failed to pay employees at least minimum wage for all hours worked or overtime rates for overtime work; failed/fails to provide employees with proper rest and/or meal breaks and/or compensate Complainant and similarly situated aggrieved employees an additional hour of premium pay for missed/improper meal and rest breaks; and failed/fails to reimburse employees for all business expenses incurred. The settlement covered the period from March 4, 2009 to February 25, 2015.

Recently a new case has been filed alleging a continuation of the same types of violations raised and settled in the Mulligan matter but for period of February 25, 2015 (the end of the Mulligan Class period) to the present.
