Firm Defeats Class Certification of Off-The-Clock Claims

In a coordinated wage and hour class action brought against a national retailer in Los Angeles Superior Court, Call & Jensen defeated certification of plaintiffs’ “off-the-clock” claims, eliminating millions of dollars of liability for the company. After four years of vigorous pre-certification discovery, the court was persuaded by the company’s substantial evidence presented in opposition to certification, including over 150 employee declarations.
