Wage And Overtime Collective Action Lawsuit Against RGIS Inventory Specialists


En Español | Documents | Contact Us

Case Summary


A federal lawsuit is currently pending in the Northern District of California against RGIS Inventory Specialists (RGIS), which claims to be the largest provider of inventory services to the retail industry.  The lawsuit charges that RGIS has violated the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the wage and hour laws of California, Illinois, Oregon, and Washington by failing to properly pay all wages and overtime compensation. 


This lawsuit is brought on behalf of the many thousands of current and former RGIS auditor employees throughout the United States.  The core goals of this lawsuit are to make RGIS compensate its current and former auditors employees for all hours worked, and to obtain injunctive relief to prevent future violations by RGIS.  The Class Action Complaint can be viewed by clicking here. 


Defendant RGIS denies all allegations of wrongdoing.


Case Status


On January 9, 2009, the Honorable Judge Joseph C. Spero, United States Magistrate Judge, held a hearing on Plaintiffs’ Motion for Class Certification and Defendant’s Motion for Decertification of FLSA Collective Action, as well as several other motions.  Subsequently, on February 6, 2009, the Court entered an Order granting in part the Plaintiffs’ motion for class certification, and denying in part RGIS’ motion for decertification.  On June 1, 2009, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied RGIS’ request to appeal the trial court’s ruling on class certification.  The Court’s Class Certification can be viewed by clicking here. 


The Court’s Class Certification Order means that the case will continue on behalf of thousands of Auditors, Assistant Team Leaders, Team Leaders, and Assistant Area Managers who allege that RGIS failed to compensate them in accordance with federal and state law.  The claims the Court certified are the donning and pre-inventory waiting time claims under California, Illinois, Oregon, and Washington law, and the travel time and itemized wage statement claims under California law. 


The Court also denied RGIS’ motion to decertify our claims for donning and pre-inventory waiting time claims under federal law, and of the travel time claims under federal law.  This means the Court determined that people from across the country who have opted in to the lawsuit are “similarly situated” enough so that these claims can proceed on a collective basis.
