What the class action is about:

On October 1, 2014, Goldblatt Partners LLP, Sotos LLP and Roy O’Connor LLP commenced a class action lawsuit against the defendant, Livingston International Inc. (“Livingston” or the “defendant”) for unpaid overtime.

The proposed national class action is in respect of unpaid overtime work at Livingston offices across Canada, and Livingston’s practices and policies in respect of overtime pay. The action is brought on behalf of a proposed class consisting of all current or former non-management employees of Livingston in its offices across Canada, in administrative, clerical, technical and supervisory job classifications or otherwise subject to Livingston’s overtime policy or policies.

The class action alleges that, since August 15, 2007, Livingston has failed to pay Class Members compensation for overtime worked.
