FRESNO – Two former employees of a Fresno County company allege they were wrongfully terminated over their complaints about the company's pay policies.
Janell Bandy and Elizabeth Camargo filed a complaint on June 11 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Pacific Choice Brands Inc. and Does 1-20 citing California Labor Code.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs were employed by the defendants until they were involuntarily terminated April 24. They allege they were terminated in retaliation for their efforts to ensure the defendant followed the law requiring the payment of overtime wages.
The plaintiffs hold Pacific Choice Brands Inc. and Does 1-20 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to compensate Bandy with overtime wages and retaliated against and wrongfully terminated the plaintiffs for their complaints about unpaid overtime compensation.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant for compensatory damages, interest, exemplary or punitive damages, costs of suit and further relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Walter W. Whelan, Brian D. Whelan and Lucas C. Whelan of Whelan Law Group APC in Fresno.
