Chicago-based Standard Parking Corp. recently settled a wage-and-hour lawsuit brought by current and former California parking attendants, valets and cashiers. The company will pay more than $4 million to some 7,100 employees.
Their lawsuit claimed Standard Parking—which operates more than 780 parking lots throughout California—failed to pay them the minimum wage and overtime and didn’t allow meal breaks.
Under the settlement, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Standard Parking will pay $4.2 million, although the company continues to dispute the allegations.
The suit originated in April 2008 when Jorge Jaime sued in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Other employees filed two separate suits later in 2008, and the three cases were consolidated in December 2008.
