Michael Kun Quoted in “What ‘Suitable Seating’ Means for Retailers in California – and Beyond”Retail Dive May 5, 2016
Michael S. Kun, a Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s Los Angeles office, was quoted in Retail Dive, in “What ‘Suitable Seating’ Means for Retailers in California – and Beyond,” by Daphne Howland.
Following is an excerpt:
“The whole concept of ‘suitable seating’ and lawsuits regarding suitable seating is a relatively new one, and hasn’t been addressed for literally decades,” Kun told Retail Dive.
And while the Supreme Court ruling is likely to transform many workplace environments in California, including retail stores, experts say it may still require further clarification and more legal wrangling.
“We believe we’re about to see a new wave of these class actions, in part because of the way the Supreme Court opinion was written,” Kun said.
