PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Banys, P.C. announced final settlement of a $5.4 million dollar case on behalf of a class of over 1800 technology workers in a class action against major Silicon Valley employer. Banys, P.C. was the lead trial firm representing high-income earning employees who had been denied vacation benefits they earned through years of service to their employer, who had mischaracterized the benefits as "sabbatical," and refused to pay. "I am proud to have helped these California professionals recover the back pay they earned," said lead trial lawyer, Christopher Banys. "When a major employer cuts corners to avoid paying its employees, the whole community suffers. Banys, P.C. will always see the fight through, to make sure these companies face justice."
The team of plaintiff lawyers fought the case for over seven years, including an appeal to the Sixth District Court of Appeals. In July of 2013, in an effort to obtain restitution for all affected, Banys, P.C. successfully petitioned for expansion of the class to include two sub classes of employees. The final approval was granted following a comprehensive review and notification process.
