RJO Employment Attorneys Recover Fees for Employer in Wage and Hour Action
Attorneys from RJO’s employment group successfully obtain an attorney’s fee award against a class member who attempted to get around a wage and hour class settlement by bringing an independent wage claim with the labor commissioner. The labor commissioner originally dismissed the wage claim as it was barred by the class settlement. The class member appealed the labor commissioner’s dismissal resulting in trial de novo proceedings in Superior Court. After RJO attorneys successfully moved to enjoin the appeal, the Court granted RJO’s motion for attorney’s fees. The clients were represented by RJO attorneys Sharon Rossi, Aaron Scolari and Dennis Huie.
