Former Apple Retail Workers File Class Action Suit Over Lost Wages Due to Bag Checks

The lawsuit alleges that employees are made to wait — off the clock — for as long as 5 to 15 minutes per shift while waiting for a manager to inspect their belongings for stolen property. The policy is in effect at all Apple Retail stores and could potentially affect thousands of employees going back more than 10 years.

The lawsuit was filed by Amanda Frlekin a former employee at Apple’s Century City store in Los Angeles and Dean Pelle who was employed at the company’s Soho store in New York. Both worked as “Specialists” until this spring. The duo is seeking to sue on behalf of thousands of current and former Apple workers across the country.

The suit seeks an unspecified amount of damages, and accuses Apple of violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act as well as various state labor laws. The initial filing, for the US District Court for the Northern District of California, is embedded below.
