We are thrilled to be able to finally disclose this victory for over 1800 Silicon Valley technology workers. Banys, P.C. was the lead trial firm representing employees who had been denied vacation benefits they earned through years of service to their employer, who had mischaracterized the benefits as “sabbatical,” and refused to pay. Lead trial lawyer, and firm founder, Christopher Banys was proud to have helped these California professionals recover the pay they earned. Banys, P.C. understands that when a major employer cuts corners to avoid paying employees, the whole community suffers.
The team of plaintiff lawyers fought the case for over seven years, including an appeal to the Sixth District Court of Appeals. In July of 2013, in an effort to obtain restitution for all affected, Banys, P.C. successfully petitioned for expansion of the class to include two sub classes of employees. The final approval was granted following a comprehensive review and notification process. Congratulations to all of the employees who waited so long for their earned pay.
