On June 26, 2012 a three judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit Court reversed an order of the District Court granting summary judgment on plaintiff’s claim for wrongful termination in violation of public policy. Plaintiff, a high level manager, was terminated after complaining to the Regional Vice President of Regus Management Group, that the company was unlawfully denying employees meal and rest breaks. When it reversed and remanded for trial, the Ninth Circuit found that plaintiff had presented sufficient evidence to go to a jury, that she was retaliatory terminated. Read the opinion here.
HSRR’s Cindy Pánuco argued the matter before the panel on June 5, 2012.
