Girard Gibbs and co-counsel filed a class action lawsuit against Cosmo alleging that merchandisers were not paid for time spent uploading data and photos from their PDAs before and after their scheduled shifts. The class action lawsuit alleged that Cosmo violated California labor & employment laws by not paying merchandisers for this required “off-the-clock” work. The lawsuit sought to recover back-pay for the merchandisers employed in California.
Girard Gibbs and co-counsel negotiated a $1 million settlement with Cosmo in the class action lawsuit. The settlement was ultimately approved by the bankruptcy court because Cosmo filed for bankruptcy in 2008.
