McDonald's Workers File Multiple Class-Action Lawsuits Alleging Widespread Wage Theft

Attorneys representing McDonald's workers in California, Michigan and New York filed class action lawsuits in federal and state courts claiming the company is systematically stealing employees' wages by forcing them to work off the clock, shaving hours off their time cards, and not paying them overtime, among other practices. The suits which were filed demand McDonald's pay back these wages and stop its illegal theft of workers' pay. In three California suits, workers claim that McDonald's and its franchise owners failed to pay them for all time worked, failed to pay proper overtime, altered pay records and deprived them of timely meal periods and rest breaks. A fourth case makes similar claims on behalf of a statewide class of workers in McDonald's corporate-owned restaurants, who are adding their claims to a lawsuit for unpaid wages, penalties, and other relief that is already pending against McDonald's in Los Angeles Superior Court. In two Michigan suits, filed against McDonald's Corp., its U.S. subsidiary and two Detroit-area franchisees, workers assert McDonald's regularly forces workers to show up for work at a scheduled time but then has them wait without pay until the store gets busy enough, and that it routinely violates minimum wage laws. The suits contend that, using McDonald's franchisor standards and corporation-provided software, McDonald's franchisees closely monitor the ratio of labor costs to revenues. When it exceeds a corporate-set target, managers tell workers arriving for their shifts to wait for up to an hour to clock in, and sometimes direct workers who have already clocked in for scheduled shifts to clock out for extended breaks until the target ratio is again achieved. Workers are not paid for these wait times, and McDonald's Corporation knowingly tolerates this practice, in violation of federal labor law. The suits also allege that McDonald's forces its low-paid workers to buy their own uniforms. Because McDonald's restaurants pay at or near the minimum wage, this drives some workers' real wages below the legal minimum, in violation of federal labor law. The case filed in New York federal court seeks to redress McDonald's blatant failure to compensate and reimburse workers at its New York stores for the time and cost of cleaning uniforms--which McDonald's requires them to wear and to keep clean. The plaintiffs contend that McDonald's failure to reimburse employees for uniform cleaning violates the New York state requirement to pay workers weekly for uniform maintenance and often also violates both federal and state minimum wage laws.
