AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The class action lawsuit was filed in Santa Clara Superior Court, California, against Starbucks alleging that Baristas were intentionally and unlawfully unpaid for training time, in which the employees had to review, memorize and complete the Starbucks training manual, and completing written quizzes while away from the store.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of all Starbucks Baristas employed in California during the past four years. The lawsuit alleges unlawful, unfair and deceptive business practices, failure to pay minimum wage and overtime wages as established by California law, and failure to provide accurate itemized wage statements.

According to the lawsuit, under California law, employers are required to pay overtime compensation for all hours worked over eight hours a day or 40 hours in a work week. California law also mandates that mandatory training be paid for, including for time spent taking quizzes, even if they are taken off the clock.

The lawsuit seeks compensation for losses for hours worked and an injunction to prevent these practices in the future.
