Petition for Review Filed in Brinker

Topics: Court Decisions, Wage & Hour Issues

On August 29, Plaintiff Adam Hohnbaum's counsel filed the much anticipated petition for review before the California Supreme Court in the well-publicized meal period case Brinker v. Hohnbaum.The California Supreme Court has 60 days to decide whether to grant review, which means that employers should know by late October whether the Brinker decision will remain citable precedent.In some instances, the Court extends the time period for determining whether to grant review by 30 days.If that happens, a decision should issue by November at the latest.We will continue to monitor the progress of the petition and post updates here.
