Motel 6 Settles Wage and Hour Class Action Lawsuit
October 9 2013
New York, NY: A proposed $890,000 settlement has been reached in a wage and hour class action lawsuit pending against Motel 6 Inc. The lawsuit, entitled Monica Gould et al v. Motel 6 Inc. et al, case No. 2:09-cv-08157 in the United States District Court for the Central District of California Central Division, was brought by past and present Motel 6 employees who allege the company denied them meal and rest breaks, failed to pay wages upon termination and neglected to provide properly itemized wage statements.
Specifically, the wage and hour lawsuit, brought in 2009, claims Motel 6 is in violation of the California Labor Code, the Business & Professions Code, the Wage Order and the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004.
Motel 6 and G6 Hospitality Inc, the two defendants in the class action, deny any and all liability, but have agreed to settle. The class includes all current and former nonexempt employees employed by Motel 6 between March 25, 2006, and July 17, 2013, an estimated 18,280 members. Previously, Motel 6 and G6 Hospitality, which were formerly known as Accor North America, settled another class action in March 2006, reducing the current class to its present size, court documents indicate.
The final settlement hearing is scheduled for November 4 2013.

Manager has us work over 5 hours without lunch and adjusts our time sheets later on to cover up. Manager threatens to write us up and fire us because we don't ask customers to give good scores on survey. Assistant manager let me know I was being fired because I was friends with ex-assistant manager.
