Class Action Proceedings Dismissed By The Los Angeles County Superior Court And Individual Claims Referred To Binding Arbitration

A factory line worker filed a putative class action alleging various wage and hour violations against the staffing company that hired him and the food manufacturing company at which he was placed.  CDF filed a motion to compel arbitration on behalf of the staffing company, and the food manufacturer joined in the motion.  The Court found that a valid arbitration agreement existed and that the Federal Arbitration Act preempted California Labor Code section 229.  Based on these findings, the Court granted CDF’s motion to compel arbitration of plaintiff’s individual claims and dismissed the class action proceedings.
