Cemex Pays $275,000 for Violating California Labor Law

Cemex, the world’s largest building material supplier and third largest cement producer, agreed to pay $275,000 as part of a settlement reached in a class action lawsuit filed by former employees. The complaint alleged that Cemex failed to compensate the employees after failing to provide meal periods, failed to make payment within the required time and unlawful business practices. The United States District Court for the Central District of California approved John Corday as the class representative, with the law firms of Kesluk, Silverstein & Jacob and the Law Offices of Michael D. Myers serving as attorneys for the putative class.

Corday was also joined by Rubin Lopez, Joseph R. Lucas, Oscar Almanza and Jeremy Castle, although Castle was later dismissed. Cemex denies any liability or wrongdoing of any kind associated with the alleged claims.
