CA Employment class actions down last week

August 2, 2009

“This report covers the period from July 24 – 30, 2009, during which time 47 new class actions were filed. While labor law class actions often top this list by a wide margin, this reporting period saw considerable balance among three separate areas. During this reporting period, only 17 class actions alleging employment-related claims were filed, representing only 36% of the total number of new class actions filed — well below normal, as labor law class actions often account for more than half of all of the new class actions filed in California state and federal courts during any particular week. Only two other categories met the 10% threshold: there were 11 new class actions alleging violations of the Electronic Fund Transfer Act (23%), and 10 new class actions alleging violations of California’s Unfair Competition Law (UCL), which includes false advertising claims (21%).”

Survey by Accenture shows that, “more than half (56 percent of the mid-Millennials and two-thirds (67 percent of the older Millennials still in college claim that whether or not an employer has state-of-the-art equipment will ben an important factor when choosing where to work.”

That’s nice but trust me, if your company is on dial-up but they pay you every couple weeks?  You might not want to complain too much.
