On July 1, 2022, Lieff Cabraser and co-counsel filed a lawsuit over complaints from Apple Solutions Consultants that Apple engages in an unlawful practice of denying them earned overtime by requiring them to begin their workday at home via online videoconferencing. After these videoconferences are complete, plaintiffs complain they are required to clock out, then travel to their next job assignment without being paid for that time, in violation of the law. Plaintiffs also allege Apple fails to include all statutorily required forms of compensation in determining the overtime regular rate. As alleged, these practices violate the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), 29 U.S.C. § 201, et seq., and its implementing regulations.
The action was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California and is brought as a collective action under the FLSA to recover unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated damages, statutory penalties, other damages, and fees and costs.
