Case Summary

(This summary is temporary, while we research the case.)

Five workers at rehabilitation programs run by the Salvation Army filed this putative class action lawsuit in San Francisco County Superior Court on May 7, 2021. The plaintiffs alleged that the Salvation Army violated numerous California state laws by forcing them to work in its thrift stores and other facilities as part of their treatment, but refusing to pay them minimum wage or comply with other aspects off California labor law. The plaintiffs were represented by Rukin, Hyland, & Riggin LLP and Rosen, Bien, Galvan, & Grunfeld LLP and requested monetary damages, declaratory and injunctive relief, and attorneys' fees.
