Employee Rights! After successfully bringing a labor commission claim against H.K Automotive, Inc. dba Hooman Hyundai of Los Angeles ("Hooman Hyundai") for having held back her vacation and commission wages, a former Hooman employee has retained Kristensen Weisberg, LLP to assist in Hooman's appeal of her successful lawsuit. The full blown employment law trial will commence in February.

If an employee brings a claim with the California Labor Commission and wins, it's just the start of the process. Employers are permitted to appeal most Labor Commission decisions pursuant to Cal. Lab. Code § 98.2. What does this mean? In essence, the employee must start over and the case is now in California Superior Court with a judge and jury. If the employee retained a lawyer to sue right off the bat, they would file a Complaint in Superior Court. So for good cases, you are starting over where you should have filed in the first place.

Hooman Hyundai is related to Hooman Automotive Group.

If you are a current or former employee of a Hooman Automotive Group company, you could very well have suffered the same illegal practices. Please contact Kristensen Weisberg, LLP to discuss. We can be reached via e-mail at klg@kristensenlaw.com, or on the phone at (310) 507-7924.

If you've had a successful Labor Commission award appealled by an employer, contact Kristensen Weisberg, LLP to determine if you need help for trial. If you have any other Employment Law or Employee related questions, feel free to call us at your convenience. Always stand up to bullies!

California Court of Appeal gives Kristensen Weisberg, LLP Big Win in Arbitration Fight with Nursing Home St. John Of God Retirement & Care Center 

On August 7, 2015, the California Court of Appeal issued its ruling upholding the trial court’s denial of St. John of God Retirement & Care Center’s Motion to Compel Arbitration.  A copy of the Opinion can be downloaded here.  The lawsuit arises from the improper administration of the diabetic drug, Glipizide, to Ella McKennis on August 30, 2012.  Ella McKennis was not diabetic. The drug knocked her into a five day coma.  The delays from the appeal prevented Ms. McKennis from seeing her day in Court as she passed during the 18 plus months of appellate litigation. Nevertheless, her surviving children are still pursing her claim to get justice for Ella and prevent future incidents at St. John of God Retirement & Care Center.

 
On the Medicare.gov website, the nursing home only received one of five stars for health inspection and two of five stars for overall rating.  St. John of God Retirement & Care Center (“St. John of God”) is a nursing home located at 2468 S. St. Andrews Place, Los Angeles, California 90018.

The lawsuit is the second case that David Weisberg has prosecuted the nursing home.  In the prior case Mr. Weisberg successfully obtained a judgment for a client whose hip was fractured at St. John of God.

If you have any information about residents being injured at St. John of God, please contact the investigation team at Kristensen Weisberg, LLP at klg @ kristensenlaw.com or (310) 507-7924.

On July 16, 2015, Orange County Superior Court Judge Peter Wilson denied Kaiser’s Motion to Compel Arbitration in a significant case where the plaintiff alleges he was sexually fondled at a Kaiser facility in 2014.   More about the case specifics can be found at Courthouse News Service.  A copy of the tentative ruling can be found here.

Plaintiff argued that the alleged enrollment agreement was invalid under Cal. Health & Safety Code § 1363.1 and that any agreement to arbitrate, if it existed, ended when the coverage termination in 2006.  The Court agreed with Plaintiff that the confusing language and small font in the alleged arbitration clause was not prominently displayed or written in “clear and understandable language.”

Kristensen Weisberg will always fights purported arbitration agreements for our clients’ interests.
