California employers are popular targets for lawyers looking for the next big lawsuit hit. They may have found a new one right under their ... well ... butts.
A little-noticed California wage order requires that “all working employees shall be provided with suitable seats when the nature of the work reasonably permits the use of seats.”
That’s not all: For employees whose work requires standing, “an adequate number of suitable seats shall be placed in reasonable proximity to the work area” for use when “it does not interfere with the performance of their duties.” Presumably, this means cashiers and others who spend much of their workday standing must have access to chairs for times when they’re not busy.
Seating class actions have already been filed against a Home Depot in Los Angeles and a Walmart in Alameda County.
