Apple is going to have to defend against another class-action suit from hourly workers, as 20,000 employees claim they weren't offered breaks for lunch, obligatory rest-breaks, or never received their last paychecks — all three of which are in violation of the state of California's labor laws.
The suit was certified as a class-action case on July 21 in California's Superior Court, and was originally filed in 2011. The case claims that Apple deliberately violated California wage and hour laws. In addition, the case claims that company policy "allowed Apple to invoke fear into the class members that if they so much as discuss the various labor policies, they run the risk of being fired, sued, or disciplined."
No report of the amount of damages being requested has been mentioned, and the case is set to be heard by California Superior Court judge Ronald Prager in San Diego.
