April 2021 employment law decisions

University of California is not subject to California’s minimum wage law.

April 23, 2021, Fourth District Court of Appeal, Guivini Gomez v. The Regents of the University of California: Gomez sued her former employer claiming the Regents failed to pay her the required minimum wages for all hours she worked resulting from a time-keeping procedure of rounding hours and deducting 30-minute meal breaks. The trial court dismissed the case (demurrer). On appeal, the Fourth District decided that California’s minimum wage law does not apply to the Regents.
