Pellegrino v. Robert Half Int'l, Inc., G039985

In plaintiffs' suit against their former employer, temporary staffing firm, alleging violations of Labor Code provisions and unfair competition claims, the judgment of the trial court is affirmed where: 1) the limitation on claims provision in the plaintiffs' employment agreements is unenforceable as plaintiffs' claims for violations of wage and hour laws are based on unwaivable and fundamental statutory rights and the provision is an unlawful attempt to restrict employees' ability to enforce their unwaivable statutory rights; 2) trial court did not deny defendant any right to a jury trial; and 3) the administrative exemption was inapplicable to plaintiffs.
