What's new from Advancing Justice - LA
In the Spotlight
On Wednesday, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles (Advancing Justice) and Hadsell Stormer & Renick LLP filed a complaint in the Orange County Superior Court on behalf of four Vietnamese nail salon workers formerly employed at Tustin Nail Spa, a popular nail salon in Orange County, California. During their many years as manicurists at the salon, the workers endured some of the most common unlawful wage and hour practices endemic in the industry, including long hours without meal and rest breaks, not receiving minimum wage and overtime compensation, incurring unlawful deductions from wages for using salon equipment and supplies, and being forced to work “off the clock.”
Our mission is to advocate for civil rights, provide legal services and education, and build coalitions to positively influence and impact Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders and to create a more equitable and harmonious society.
