Case DescriptionCase Type: Wage & Hour
Sanford Heisler Sharp represents employees who worked at Costco Wholesale warehouses and were subjected to unpaid “lockdowns” as a routine part of their work day, in violation of certain wage and hour laws. On December 14, 2010 the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California certified their suit as a state class action in California and a federal conditional collective action nationwide.
On April 15, 2014, the Court granted Costco’s motion to decertify the California class action and federal collective action. The decision is currently under appeal to the United States Circuit for the Ninth Circuit.
Thus, at the present moment, there is no longer either a class or collective action. If you want to pursue an action for unpaid wages against Costco, you may be required to file your own lawsuit. There are time limits for filing a claim so you must act promptly.
Sanford Heisler has sent a postcard with an important message to all of those who opted into the FLSA collective action.
If you believe you were part of the class or collective action and you have any questions, you may contact Sanford Heisler Sharp at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-499-5219.
