Ornelas v Tapestry

Tapestry Class Action Filed August 31, 2018

Our office joined with Boyamian Law in filing both a Class Action and a Private Attorney General Action (“PAGA”) against Tapestry, Inc. (hereafter,  “Defendant”) for work done at Tapestry locations in California for various matters relating to unpaid wages arising out of his employment.  The case is on behalf of Sales Employees who worked at Kate Spade, Coach and/or Stuart Weitzman retail store locations in California during the Class Period of August, 2014 and forward.

The Class Action goes back to the end of August of 2014, four years before the filing of the complaint.  The PAGA case only covers time worked going back to a year before we filed with the Labor Workforce and Development Agency (so it covers from August 31, 2017 forward).

The Plaintiff Sales Associate worked at a Stuart Weitzman retail (Tapestry)  Store in Canoga Park (Los Angeles County) for Defendant.  By this lawsuit, he seeks to represent those current and former Sales Associate  employees who worked at other like institutions operated by the Tapestry in California during that time period.

We allege that the Tapestry failed to provide payment for all wages due, including minimum wage and overtime, and failed to provide adequate meal and rest periods.  For each such missed meal and rest break, those employees were entitled to one hour of pay per day (i.e., 2 hours total per day).  As a result, if our allegations are correct, Defendant  likewise failed accurately report all wages earned, and hours worked.

At this point you can do one of several things if you worked in such a capacity for Coach, Kate Spade or Stuart Weitzman since August of 2014.  You can help us by calling or emailing us, and providing us with the names and telephone numbers and contact information of people with whom you worked there.  You can also provide us with copies of your work schedules and earnings statements, again going back to August, 2014.

If you do want to do something to possibly help yourself and us in helping such employees, however, we ask you either call us at 626-795-0205 or 818-547-5200.  You might also wish to email us, and you can do so at tom@falveylaw.com.  

If you’re really of a mind to help us in our case, please send along any documents relating to your working there such as handbooks, employee manuals, timesheets or texts or email, that kind of thing.  It's happened before.  You never know how it might help now.

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