Afzal v Sears


Update February 21, 2018 - Sears' attempt to require Arbitration Rejected by Court!

You might have been wondering what's been going on in this case since we filed it back in August of 2016.

The answer is that Sears sought to have the case arbitrated, and it took this long for it to get finally decided.

We are hopeful that it will move along more quickly now.

In the meantime - have you worked for Sears, in sales, since 2015?  If so, please do yourself - and your fellow employees - a favor and give us a call so we might discuss your working arrangements at Sears.

Thanks very much.  We hope to hear from you soon.


Plaintiff’s Allegations    

Our firm has joined with the Law Offices of Vida M. Holguin in filing a Complaint for Civil Penalties under Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”) of 2004, and Labor Code 2698, etc.,  against Sears, Roebuck and Co. and Sears Holding Management Corporation (hereafter, “Sears”). 

This case is filed on behalf of Consultative Sales Associates who worked in California non-exempt restaurant employees in California who have worked for Sears and were compensated on a hybrid commission and hourly basis.

In his lawsuit, attached hereto, Plaintiff contends that Sears did not comply with the requirements under California law for payment of wages.. If successful, this action allows former and current employees to receive payment in the form of penalties owed by Sears because of its alleged acts in the manner in which it paid these employees.  

Sears has not yet responded to the complaint filed August 19, 2016. The court has not yet ruled on any of Plaintiff's allegations or determined whether the case is appropriate for class action status.
