JVC Truck Lines California Drivers Unpaid Wages Settlement Notes
- Hernandez v. J.V.C. Truck Lines, Inc.
- Case No. CIVDS1714857
- Pending in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of San Bernardino
In August 2017, plaintiff Jesus Hernandez filed this California unpaid wages class action lawsuit on behalf of all J.V.C Truck Lines drivers, claiming, among other things, that the company never paid them for non-driving tasks such as “rest breaks, pre- and post-trip inspection time, loading/unloading time, cleaning, fueling, and paperwork time”, violating California wage and hours laws.
J.V.C. Truck Lines denies all of the claims raised in this case and says that its practices are in compliance with with California wage and hour laws.
The Court granted preliminary approval of the settlement terms on January 22, 2018. The Settlement Agreement and other related documents are available on the JVC Truck Lines California Drivers Settlement website.
