Fisher Phillips Partner Discusses California Supreme Court Ruling in Pivotal Off-The-Clock Work Case

7.28.18

Fisher Phillips partner David Amaya is quoted by the Wall Street Journal and Fox Business on the wide-reaching impacts of California’s Supreme Court ruling that Starbucks must pay workers for the micro amounts of time they spend transitioning off their shift. David discussed the impetus behind the decision, telling the WSJ: “On closer calls, it comes down to what the courts perceive. Do they perceive the employer is just not making any effort to keep track of the time?” The ruling has the potential to result in staggering penalties for California employers and could influence legislators beyond the confines of the state, as noted in the firm’s Legal Alert.
