Three laid-off Heller Ehrman employees filed a class action complaint against the dissolving firm on Monday, asking for a jury trial over pay. The complaint proposes various classes, to potentially cover "hundreds" who have been or will be terminated. An attorney for the plaintiffs alleges that Heller failed to pay wages to its terminated employees that it owed in accordance with the federal and California WARN Acts, vacation laws in California, and Heller's own employee "contracts" on vacation payouts.
