Tapia v. Clarks - Class Action Lawsuit


Update:  Court rejected Plaintiff's Position

Unfortunately, the court ruled in defendant's favor and against us in this class action, such that is is no longer proceeding.  We're grateful to all of those who assisted us in regard to this case, and wish all of you the best.


Plaintiff's Allegations

A proposed class-action lawsuit has been filed by Harriette Tapia ("Plaintiff") Against the Clarks Companies, N.A.; Clarks Companies, North America; C. & J. Clark Retail, Inc.; C. & J. Clark America, Inc.; the Clarks Companies Foundation (“Defendant”), on behalf of employees holding the position of Store Manager who worked for Defendants in California, at any time during the four years preceding the filing of the lawsuit on April 3, 2012. The case was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, and is entitled Harriette Tapia v. Clarks, et al, Case No. BC 482183 (a copy of the complaint is attached).

In this lawsuit, filed on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff Tapia contends that Clarks did not comply with the requirements under California law for payment of wages. If successful, a class action allows former and current employees to receive back wages that are owed to them.

The court has not yet ruled on any of Plaintiff's allegations or determined whether the case is appropriate for class action status.

If you worked for Clarks, employed as a Store Manager in the State of California since April 3, 2008, we would like to speak with you. Please contact us by either calling our office at 626.795.0205, by mailing us at 301 North Lake Avenue, Suite 810, Pasadena, California, 91101, or by emailing us at tom@falveylaw.com.

We hope to hear from you soon.
