May 24, 2018, the JCL Law Firm settled a wage and hour class action on behalf of a class of approximately 1,500 misclassified California employees. The JCL Law firm filed the class action complaint in the California Superior Court alleging that the employer improperly classified a group of approximately 1,500 workers as independent contractors rather than employees.
