Costco Sued for False Imprisonment of Employees

Bloomberg News reported, “Costco Wholesale Corp., the largest U.S. warehouse club, was sued by a California worker who accuses the retailer of false imprisonment for locking in employees against their will at closing time.” The complaint by “Mary Pytelewski, a cash register clerk at a Costco warehouse in San Marcos, California, alleges the company violates wage laws by refusing to allow workers to clock back in and be paid for the extra time they’re locked in while managers close stores, according to a lawsuit filed yesterday in state court in San Diego.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
