Rushovich Mehtani LLP has announced the company has obtained a $1.35 million settlement on behalf of approximately 1,500 Southern California factory workers. This is a significant victory for the firm given that the case has been in litigation since 2013.

The case was Manny Ponce v. Pentair Water Pool and Spa Inc., Roth Staffing Companies LLC, and Does 1 through 50, inclusive I 30-2013-00647036-CU-OE-CXC which was heard before the Orange Superior Court on December 2, 2016 and was presided over by the Honorable Judge Thierry P. Colaw. Firm attorneys Eliot J. Rushovich and Aanand Ghods-Mehtani represented the plaintiffs in this case.

According to the case details, it was filed as a result of the contention that the defendants, Pentair Water Pool and Spa Inc. and Roth Staffing Companies LLC, failed to pay wages, failed to provide overtime compensation, failed to pay wages upon termination, failed to provide accurate itemized wage statements, and failed to provide timely meal periods. While the defendants denied any wrongdoing, the case was eventually settled for $1.35 million.

The original filing date of the case was April 29, 2013, which now marks nearly four years of litigation for Rushovich Mehtani LLP.
