Injection“Former employees of Abbott Laboratories can now join a Class Action Lawsuit that has been filed against Abbott Laboratories over its employee vacation pay policy,” said Norman Blumenthal, founding partner of the San Francisco employment law firm of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik which filed the Class Action Lawsuit.

According to the class action complaint, Abbott Laboratories’ employee vacation pay policy failed to provide timely payment of all vested vacation pay owed to their employees after they terminated their employment.  Under the California Labor Code, all earned and accrued vacation time must be paid out at the time that the employee/employer relationship ends.  Abbot Laboratories violated the California Labor Code by creating an illegal scheme that intentionally avoided paying out the vacation time earned at the time of employment termination.

On July 3, 2012, Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed the lawsuit of Osifo-Doe v. Abbott Laboratories which alleged that Abbott Laboratories failed to pay overtime to the company’s Business Analysts.  Since learning of additional claims regarding the nonpayment of vacation pay to other Abbott employees, Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik has widened the scope of the lawsuit.  The case is currently pending in the Solano County Superior Court for the State of California, Case No. FCS040073.
