Alameda, California

Employee rights firm Kyle Todd, P.C. has filed a putative class action lawsuit against JingleBells LLC and related entities (“JingleBells”), a franchisee of several Taco Bell restaurants operating approximately six locations throughout California, on behalf of the company’s current and former employees. The complaint, filed in San Bernardino County, alleges various violations of the California Labor Code, including failure to provide meal and rest periods compensation; failure to pay minimum wage; failure to pay overtime compensation; and failure to pay all accrued sick days. The complaint also alleges unfair business practices and a cause of action for penalties pursuant to the California Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA).

The class action alleges that class representative, Maggie Chong, and other aggrieved employees of JingleBells have been subjected to numerous wage and hour violations which are the result of systemic policies and procedures implemented by JingleBells throughout its restaurant locations. As a result of this, the class action complaint alleges that Ms. Chong and other aggrieved employees were often forced to work without adequate and proper compensation.

Ms. Chong is represented by attorney Kyle Todd, Esq., of Kyle Todd, P.C. Requests for comment can be directed to attorney Kyle Todd, at (323) 208-9171.
