Group of Peloton Employees Sues The Company in California

Peloton has another lawsuit on their hands, this time from a group of past and current employees. The group is composed of employees from Peloton warehouses in Riverside County and Northern California, and they are alleging numerous California Labor Code violations.

According to MyNewsLA, a local news site that covers Los Angeles and Orange County:

The Los Angeles Superior Court suit was brought under the state’s Private Attorneys General Act, which authorizes allegedly “aggrieved employees” to file lawsuits to recover civil penalties on behalf of themselves, other employees and the state for purported Labor Code violations.

The suit alleges that employees are routinely denied meal and rest breaks, overtime pay, and reimbursement for personal expenses. Salvador Pulido, Joshua Reyes, and Timothy Van Nortwick – all former assembly technicians – are the key plaintiffs in the suit. They cite experiences and provide examples stretching back to the Covid-19 pandemic, when demand for Peloton products were at their all-time high.

Peloton has not yet issued a response to the suit.

There has been a number of notable developments in Peloton’s legal battles in recent weeks. Peloton and Echelon recently announced they reached settlements in each of their ongoing lawsuits; and former instructor Daniel McKenna is suing Peloton for wrongful termination. Peloton was recently granted an extension until December 3 to respond to McKenna.

MyNewsLA was the first to break this story.
