Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services –Unpaid Overtime Lawsuit - Update January 17, 2018

Los Angeles County filed a motion to dismiss our case. In response to that motion, the Court ruled that the County was not required to follow the new overtime regulations until November 12, 2015, instead of January 1, 2015 as we had argued. However, the Court denied the County’s argument that it could not be sued for overtime violations because it was acting as an arm of the state. The County is appealing this ruling. We have filed a request for permission to appeal the court’s ruling regarding the effective date of the overtime regulations.

The appeals process takes time, so in the meantime if there are any questions or any changes to contact information, please feel free to contact our case clerk at ihss@nka.com or call at (877) 344-4628.
