The U.S. Chamber filed a letter requesting that the California Court of Appeal publish its opinion addressing when California employers may round their employees’ time entries in order to calculate the hours worked by the employees.
The letter explains that the opinion provides vital guidance to litigants and courts regarding what factual circumstances satisfy the standards for lawful rounding. Due to the significant volume of wage and hour litigation in which the rounding defense arises, the type of evidence that suffices to establish that defense as a matter of law is a legal issue of continuing public interest.
The brief was filed jointly with the California Chamber of Commerce.
John A. Taylor, Jr., Jeremy B. Rosen, and Felix Shafir of Horvitz & Levy LLP served as counsel for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the U.S. Chamber Litigation Center.
