Firm is leading a class action against a variety of auto dealerships in Northern California for wage and hour violations against their employees. The complaint alleges, among other things, that Tracy Auto Center, its owners, and various other dealerships failed to provide adequate meal and rest breaks for their employees, failed to properly compensate their employees for all hours worked, and instructed employees to alter their time records in order to look as though they had worked less than they had. The dealerships in question include Tracy Ford and Tracy Ford Used Car Superstore, Antioch Nissan, Antioch Toyota, Antioch Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, All Star Hyundai, All Star Ford, and All Star Genesis.

Firm is leading a class action lawsuit against the International Musicians League (IML) for violations of the Talent Agency Act. Plaintiffs allege that IML, posing as the “LUCKY DEVILS BAND,” books gigs for musicians using its services and keeps over 50% of the proceeds from each event. Despite acting as a talent agency, plaintiffs say, IML has failed to fulfill any of the requirements for talent agencies in the State of California, thereby avoiding having to pay its musician artists their fair share of those proceeds.
