Labor Law Attorneys, JCL Law Firm, APC, and Zakay Law Group, APLC File a Class Action Lawsuit Against Summit Pizza West, LLC, Alleging Violations of California Labor Code

The San Diego employment law attorneys, JCL Law Firm, APC, and at Zakay Law Group, APLC filed a class action complaint alleging that Summit Pizza West, LLC violated the California Labor Code. The Summit Pizza West, LLC, class action lawsuit, Case No. 37-2021-00001288-CU-OE-CTL, is currently pending in the San Diego Superior Court of the State of California. A copy of the Complaint can be read here.

The complaint alleges Summit Pizza West, LLC engaged in unfair competition in violation of Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200 by failing to: (1) pay minimum and overtime wages; (2) provide meal and rest breaks; (3) reimburse employees for business expenses; (4) provide accurate itemized wage statements; and (5) provide wages when due.

The lawsuit also alleges Summit Pizza West, LLC violated the Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”), which gives rise to civil penalties as a result of Summit Pizza West, LLC’s conduct. PAGA authorizes aggrieved employees to file a lawsuit to recover civil penalties on behalf of themselves, other employees, and the State of California for Labor Code violations. PAGA allows aggrieved employees to step into the shoes of California state regulators to recover civil penalties, which means ordinary citizens are “deputized” as private attorneys general to enforce the Labor Code.
