Court: Warehouse Can’t Fire Contract Workers

Workforce (02/03/12)

A judge in California recently issued a preliminary injunction to prohibit firing of contract workers at a Walmart-contracted warehouse in Mira Loma. The warehouse operator, Schneider Logistics Inc., and Premier Warehousing Ventures LLC—the staffing firm that staffed provided employees for the operation—are being sued for alleged improper record-keeping, inadequate payment for hours worked, and failure to provide meal and rest breaks. Premier Warehousing gave workers a termination letter saying their jobs would end Feb. 24, and indicated it would not rehire any of the workers.

The judge ruled the workers would likely be able to prove the firing was retaliatory. The judge also rejected Schneider’s argument that it was not a joint employer.
