Wage & hour class action alleging off-the-clock claims

Advised counsel to a national drugstore chain in a California Labor Code class action claim alleging unpaid wages as a result of time spent waiting in security check lines prior to or after clocking in or out. CRA collected timekeeping and payroll data on retail store employees across hundreds of locations, assisted in creating and narrowing the class list, and provided sample data production for the client to share with opposing counsel. Analysis included class, workweek, and shift counts, both overall and stratified by type of employee; descriptive statistics of employee hourly rates; and reporting of specific data regarding employee clock-in/out times and overlap between particular employees. The client used these calculations to settle the claims in pre-trail mediation.
