Employee Rights! After successfully bringing a labor commission claim against H.K Automotive, Inc. dba Hooman Hyundai of Los Angeles ("Hooman Hyundai") for having held back her vacation and commission wages, a former Hooman employee has retained Kristensen Weisberg, LLP to assist in Hooman's appeal of her successful lawsuit. The full blown employment law trial will commence in February.
If an employee brings a claim with the California Labor Commission and wins, it's just the start of the process. Employers are permitted to appeal most Labor Commission decisions pursuant to Cal. Lab. Code § 98.2. What does this mean? In essence, the employee must start over and the case is now in California Superior Court with a judge and jury. If the employee retained a lawyer to sue right off the bat, they would file a Complaint in Superior Court. So for good cases, you are starting over where you should have filed in the first place.
If you are a current or former employee of a Hooman Automotive Group company, you could very well have suffered the same illegal practices. Please contact Kristensen Weisberg, LLP to discuss. We can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on the phone at (310) 507-7924.
