The San Diego labor lawyers Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action complaint against Marquee Staffing ("Marquee") on September 6, 2012, alleging that the company required their employees to work off the clock while donning and doffing their work uniforms. Lawson, et al. v. Marquee Staffing, Case No. 37-2012-00103717-CU-OE-CTL is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court.
The class action Complaint alleges that Marquee required the employees to wear company provided uniforms, which consisted of a cloth apron, hair nets, and latex gloves. Marquee also allegedly required the employees to change into their uniforms upon arriving at work and change back into their regular clothes before leaving work. The complaint further alleges that Marquee never paid the employees for the time spent donning and doffing their uniforms or for the time spent walking to and from the dressing area and time clock station.
Managing partner of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug, & Bhowmik, Norm Blumenthal states, “the time spent putting on and taking off company provided uniforms and safety gear at the start and end of work is compensable work time.”
