On July 7, 2020, SLF filed a class action on behalf of a group of strikebreakers, including nurses, working for Rapid Staff/Rapid Action in California. Among other things, the lawsuit alleges that the staffing agency unlawfully fails to compensate its strikebreakers for time they spend commuting to their assigned facilities on company-provided shuttles. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that because the strikebreakers are required to take company-provided shuttles due to safety concerns caused by picketing around their assigned facilities, they are under the employer’s control during their commute time, and must therefore be fully compensated for that time under California law. The lawsuit further alleges that the strikebreakers do not receive proper meal or rest breaks, and Rapid Staff/Rapid Action unlawfully fails to pay them premiums for these non-compliant breaks.
