Bank of America
The attachments (“Opinions”) below discuss Righetti Glugoski, P.C.’s success in litigating this lawsuit on behalf of our clients.
Green v. Bank of America
- First Appeal: On February 3, 2013 the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Righetti Glugoski’s clients by holding that the district court (Judge Manuel Real) erred. The Court of Appeal held that (a) the National Banking Act does not preempt California’s wage and hour regulations, and (b) the district court erred in finding that employees must request a seat before the employer is required to provide one.
- Second Appeal: After returning to the district court following the first appeal, the district judge dismissed the case again. On October 13, 2015 the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals again reversed the district court judge finding that sufficient notice had been provided to the bank under the PAGA. The Court of Appeal then took the unusual step of removing Judge Real from the case and reassigning the case to a new judge.
Belevich v. Bank of America, N.A., Central District of California, Case No. 15-CV-09171-PSG
Meal period wages for Bank of America personal bankers in California. Righetti Glugoski successfully negotiated a six million dollar ($6,000,000.00) settlement on behalf of Bank of America personal bankers/relationship managers in California who were not timely provided meal periods. As a result of the litigation, Bank of America changed its policies and now provides its California branch employees with the opportunity to request an additional hour of premium pay when their work duties prevent them from timely receiving a meal period.
