Tomorrow will start in a California class action request by four former employees of an Apple Store, which have accused Apple of alleged violations of the US Labor Code.
The process will begin tomorrow in California and will be chaired by Judge Eddie C. Sturgeon. The case was presented for the first time in 2011, and was elevated to the status of Class Action in 2014: Apple is accused of not providing sufficient time during lunch breaks and pauses to allow more employees. The California Code provides that employees have a lunch break of at least 30 minutes when the working day exceeds five hours, and a further break of at least 10 minutes every 4 hours of work. According to the plaintiffs, Apple has never respected these times.
At the Class Action can join all the former and current dipendendi Apple, who, if victorious, will share the amount of compensation determined by the jury.
