Cardinal Logistics California Driver Class Action Wage Theft Lawsuit

Comments (6)

Cardinal Logistics California Driver Class Action Lawsuit

The Cardinal Logistics website goes on to boast:

Cardinal provides customers with knowledge-based, integrated logistics solutions using a combination of dedicated resources, advanced systems technology and experienced professionals.

Fact is, it is the “advanced technology” that is going to cook Cardinal Logistics goose, so to speak.  We are going to use their own technology to prove the allegations in the case that Cardinal Logistics is engaged in wage theft as outlined in the lawsuit.     

According to some reports, Cardinal Logistics has thousands of trucks and thousands of drivers.  Based upon our investigation hundred of those drivers are home based here in California.  Which is where we come in, of course.  

But here is the real laughable part.

According to reports, in a prior lawsuit against Cardinal Logistics, there were motions file with the court that said, There was “a substantial risk that Cardinal would be unable to satisfy any judgment obtained,” Really?  

On the one hand, Cardinal is engaged in wage theft (see the complaint in our lawsuit). On the other hand, Cardinal boasts they are the “most trusted” transportation leader in the country. And on the other hand, Cardinal appears to have contrived that they don’t have the ability to repay the money that they have taken from their drivers.  

If you are a current driver for Cardinal Logistics (or worked for them in from June 2011 to recently) - then you should pay attention to this Cardinal Logistics California Driver Class Action lawsuit.


What is Wage Theft?

Wage theft is the illegal practice of the company not paying you for all of your work including:

Violating minimum wage laws, not paying overtime, forcing you to work off the clock, not paying you for all time worked, time-shaving, not providing you meal periods, not providing you rest periods, encouraging you to work and turning a blind-eye while you are clocked out and working during meal periods, not relieving you from all duties during meal periods and rest periods, not paying you wages in a timely manner, not paying you overtime and much more.

I’ve worked for cardinal for 15 months, in my branch mr and other employees work 12-14 hours a day. Sometimes more. We just get a straight wage in Stockton, never any overtime. We live and work in California, we pay state taxes, we follow state regulations. Yet we get no overtime as California states

Multiple missed lunch breaks. Worked through most and they would edit the electronic time clock and add them in. Most weeks they weren’t added in. Worked long hours and had days shaved to keep under their max allotted hours. Always a promise to make up for it and never happened. No overtime pay at one specific account because they also pay mile and stop. Definitely not worth it. Management is about their bottom line and cutting what they need too to increase their quarterly bonus. Check time cards for recent few years and you’ll see that lunch breaks were either missed or manually entered to avoid management getting in trouble from corporate office. New time clock app they created gets edited by management as well and they still manually enter the breaks to avoid trouble.
