UPS Doesn’t Reimburse for Socks, Class Claims

LOS ANGELES (CN) – A United Parcel Service worker says in a new class action that she and her co-workers weren’t reimbursed for socks bearing UPS’ logo, which is a required part of their uniform.
     Laura Gallardo says in Los Angeles Superior Court that she regularly purchased the required socks during her five years as a driver at the delivery company’s Cerritos, Calif. location.
     But she says she and other workers were never reimbursed for the socks.
     She seeks class certification and unspecified damages for labor law violations, and is represented by Michael Nourmand.
