Clark v Quest Diagnostics Clinical Laboratories, Inc. Class Action Lawsuit (Route Sales Representatives)

Update January 1, 2019 - Motion For Class Certification Set to be Heard March 4, 2019

We know a lot of you have been wondering what’s been happening on this case.

Our case was consolidated with another later-filed case last fall, and that slowed the litigation down a bit.

We then filed our Motion for Class Certification on August 1, 2018, but because of various interruptions (many because of unfortunate personal circumstances), our request to have the class certified has not yet been decided upon by the court.

Our office has taken the depositions, however, of Sandra Lynn Laidlaw and Ribka Fox.  We have also filed declarations on behalf of our case, which we believe will assist us in proving the justification for filing this class action lawsuit.

Do you have any information that you think could help us in our case?  If so, would you please help yourself and this case and others, and provide whatever you have to us by either mailing copies to our law office or emailing us at tom@falveylaw.com?  

Or, if you want to talk about the case, or your employment since then, with Quest or with any other employer or regarding any other matter, feel free to call us at 626-795-0205.

Thanks very much for whatever you can do.

We hope to hear from you soon.

Update March 9, 2017 - You Can Talk to Us!

Did you work for Quest?  What are the chances you were told that you couldn't talk to other employees - even if you got there before work began?  Who told you that?  Was it in writing?

If Quest told you that you weren't to talk with each other, please call us.  If you got in trouble from Quest for that, we really want to talk to you.

And, if you were fired either from Quest or anywhere else for discussing your salary, be sure to call us right away.

Thanks.  We hope to hear from you soon.

Update February 13, 2017

Great News - We finally got the class list of employees from Quest!  Look for our letter coming soon!

It took a long time, but we finally received the list of employees from Quest who were willing to talk to us.  The vast majority of you - if you were employed by Quest as a Route Sales Representative since September, 2011 - were willing to let us do that, just as we expected.

You can expect to get a letter from us explaining a bit more about the case in the next week or so.

If you don’t get such a letter, please call us at once.  It would mean that either we have an incorrect address for you, or that you were somehow left off the list.

Thanks very much.  We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Update 12/28/16 - Quest Is Holding Out!

Why would this be?

A Notice was supposed to be going out to all potential class members, telling them of our interest in talking with them, but either Quest - or its attorneys - still haven’t provided the list of names and addresses, more than a month after they were supposed to do so.

Have you worked for Quest Diagnostics as a Route Sales Representative in California during the past five years?  If so, perhaps you can help us out with our case.

Are you getting your destinations by text?  On a schedule on a computer that changes throughout the day?  Are you working so hard, having to drive to so many labs that you barely have time to use the restroom?  Are you eating a sandwich on the run?

Call us if any of those things apply to you, or if you think we should know anything else about your employment at Quest.

Here’s all you have to do.  You can email us at tom@falveylaw.com and let us know anything you think will help.  

Or you can call our office at (818) 547-5200 or (626) 795-0205.

You want to send us copies of your paystubs, your schedules, your timesheets, your earnings statements, or emails?  You can mail them to us at Falvey Law Offices, 550 North Brand Blvd., Suite 1500, Glendale, CA 91203.

Sometimes, people send us that kind of thing with no identifying information.  

Thanks for whatever you can do.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Plaintiff's Allegations

On September 9, 2015, we filed a proposed class-action lawsuit entitled Clark v Quest Diagnostics Clinical Laboratories, Inc. (the Defendant, “Quest”).

This case seeks unpaid wages for  employees who were and were or are employed by Quest who held the position of Route Sales Representatives for Defendant’s Hub in Los Angeles County at any time during the four years before the lawsuit was filed. The case was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court as Case Number BC 594022.

In this lawsuit, filed on behalf of Mr. Clark and those people who worked at the same job, Plaintiff claims that Quest did not comply with California law for payment of wages.  This also includes claims for failure to pay minimum wages, overtime compensation, failure to provide meal periods, failure to provide rest periods.  It also includes claims for failure to provide timely wages upon termination of employment and for failure to provide accurate itemized wage statements.

If we are successful, a class action allows former and current employees to receive back pay that is 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 Quest as an hourly employee in the State of California since September 9, 2011, we would like to speak with you.  Please call our office at (818) 547-5200 or (626) 795-0205. You can also email us at tom@falveylaw.com. Or if you like, you can mail us at Falvey Law Offices, 550 North Brand Blvd., Suite 1500, Glendale, CA 91203.

Your calling and contacting us may help us in this case. If you have any documents relating to your job there, such as copies of earnings statements, checks, paystubs, nametags, that might assist our case.  Similarly, if you can let us review anything you signed, or provide names of fellow employees, manuals, emails, letters, timesheets, schedules or anything else, it might help us and others to see them.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide. Your call might go a long way toward helping all these employees at Quest.

We hope to hear from you soon.
