    NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge ruled that minor leaguers are year-round employees who work during training time and found Major League Baseball violated Arizona state minimum wage law and is liable for triple damages. U.S. District Judge Joseph C. Spero in San Francisco also ruled MLB did not comply with California wage statement requirements, awarding $1,882,650 in penalties. Spero unsealed a 181-page ruling Tuesday night in a lawsuit filed eight years ago. He ruled minor leaguers should be paid for travel time to road games in the California League and to practice in Arizona and Florida. “These are not students who have enrolled in a vocational school with the understanding that they would perform services, without compensation, as part of the practical training necessary to compete the training and obtain a license,” Spero wrote. In rejecting many of MLB’s motions for summary judgments, Spero allowed those claims to proceed to a trial scheduled for June 1. He ruled for the players under Arizona state law, leaving only the amount of damages to be determined. “For decades, minor...

    Businesses are struggling to track employee hours in a COVID-19 world of remote work, and some have become the target of wage-and-hour claims from disgruntled workers who have been furloughed or laid off. John Viola, an employment lawyer with Thompson Coburn LLP, said employers have seen an uptick in claims from displaced employees who are taking legal action as a remedy to their situation. Although motivated by their loss of work as a result of the pandemic, the claims are typically not tied to COVID-19, he said. “The actions are usually linked to issues that weren’t brought to light before the health crisis hit,” Viola said. “It could be a case where someone alleges unpaid wages or they were not getting lunch or rest breaks.” Employees have a year in which to bring file a claim under the Private Attorneys General Act. That authorizes workers to file lawsuits to recover civil penalties on behalf of themselves, other employees and the state of California for labor code violations. “You can also bring a civil action as yourself,” Viola said. “That can...
    March 8 marks the one-year anniversary of the first reported COVID-19 cases in Iowa, which led to the state’s economic plunge in April 2020. Certain challenges persist despite substantial recovery, however. “There were a lot of dire forecasts in April and May of last year, but in a lot of ways, the Iowa economy has recovered faster than a lot of people, including myself, had anticipated,” Iowa Department of Revenue Chief Economist and Division Administrator of Research and Policy Robin Anderson told The Center Square in a phone interview. The state has gained back about 121,000 of the 186,000 jobs that were lost last April, she said. Receiving “a tremendous amount” of federal stimulus money has supported spending and personal income, she said. Executive Director Joe Murphy of the Iowa Business Council, which includes 22 members from among Iowa’s largest employers, said the last two quarters of 2020 were “very positive” for the organization compared with the first half of 2020, indicating “a strong turnaround.” Increasing COVID-19 vaccine availability in the state also lends to the optimism, he said. “When...
    Kipp Jones, The Western Journal March 4, 2021 0 Comments Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York has equated her fight for a $15 minimum wage to a compromise and said she thinks all workers should be paid at least $24 per hour for their time. During an interview with MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan on Monday, the congresswoman attacked moderate Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who is opposed to a wage hike, while discussing the Democrats’ use of the coronavirus pandemic to jack up wages. She further claimed that a $15 an hour minimum wage is actually a compromise, and that anyone who disagrees that her on the issue is living in a “dystopian capitalist nightmare.” “People are sleeping in their cars, they can’t afford baby formula, there are basic goods that people can’t afford to live on” she said, noting that the current federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. “It is deeply, deeply shameful that we are even having this conversation. Because when you take the minimum wage from several decades ago and you actually account...
    Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden recited a flurry of figures in a Friday speech in which he urged Congress to pass the $1.9 trillion pandemic relief package he calls the American Rescue Plan. We fact-checked many of the statistical claims Biden made in the speech -- and found Biden was highly factual, though there are some nuances worth noting. Here's an assessment of seven of the claims we looked into:Job losses in educationBiden noted that his plan includes funding for local governments to keep critical public employees on the job; his predecessor Donald Trump and other Republicans resisted this kind of direct aid to state and local governments. Biden said: "Over the last year, more than 600,000 educators have lost their jobs in the cities and towns." Facts First: This figure is roughly accurate, but it relies on a broad definition of "educators."Read MoreBiden's claim is based on official federal data about people employed in "local government education." That data does indeed show a loss of more than 600,000 jobs -- 681,400 jobs, specifically -- between January 2020 and December 2020....

    OAKLAND (CBS SF) — The California Labor Commissioner on Wednesday announced two separate lawsuits against Uber and Lyft for committing wage theft by incorrectly classifying employees as independent contractors. According to a press release issued by the California Department of Industrial Relations, the suit claims both Uber and Lyft have deprived their drivers of a host of legal protections in violation of California labor laws — including Assembly Bill 5, which went into effect on January 1, 2020 — by misclassifying them as independent contractors. The lawsuits are the latest legal actions taken against the two companies in connection with the passage of AB5.
