Scott Cole & Associates Announces Update for Class Action Lawsuit Against Guitar Center
Guitar Center Terminates Lead Class Action Plaintiff Manager and Invades Employee Privacy Rights, Alleges a Complaint Filed Today in San Francisco Superior Court
According to Scott Cole, within days of being hit with a class action lawsuit for failing to offer meal and rest breaks to its California workforce, Guitar Center fired the man who pioneered the lawsuit and allowed its workers to parade the named plaintiff’s final paycheck around the workplace. In immediate reaction to these events, the plaintiff’s attorneys at Scott Cole & Associates amended the Complaint today to allege a wrongful termination and invasion of privacy claim.
“If Guitar Center thinks it can send a message to its workers that standing up for their rights will cost them, this new wrongful termination claim sends a stronger message right back,” says Scott Cole, the principal lawyer on the case. “Firing our client was a big mistake.”
The lawsuit is entitled Pellanda v. Guitar Center, Inc. (San Francisco County Superior Court Case # CGC-11-513823).
