Employee UCL Action Prevented by Local Restaurant

A local restaurant faced several Labor Commissioner claims for wage and hour violations from its former servers and cooks.  Soon after, the employees dismissed their Labor Commissioner claims and filed action in California Superior Court alleging multiple claims including, Labor Code violations, theft and unlawful acts under California’s Unfair Competition Law (UCL).  We quickly negotiated favorable settlements with the named employees; these settlements prevented future legal disputes and case proceeding as UCL action on behalf of all employees.
