McDonald’s who just agreed to pay tens of millions of dollars to New Zealand employees just last week due to a holiday pay error, has been hit again with another millions of dollar lawsuit as they are been sued for wage theft.

McDonald’s is been sued for $26 million to settle a lawsuit over wage theft. This will finally end the continuous legal battle between them and Californian workers who alleged that McDonald’s was not paying them for over time and also deny them of their timely breaks. This lawsuit is represented by about 38,000 people.

Maria Sanchez and others in 2013 filed a law suit against corporate-owned McDonald’s restaurants in the state. They said that, since 2009 McDonald’s has not been paying overtime to employees who worked more than eight hours during a 24-hour period and this is a violation against state law.

McDonald’s respondent said in a statement that “While we continue to believe our employment practices comply with the California Labor Code, we have decided to resolve this lawsuit”. They also added that “we take our responsibility as an employer seriously and are deeply committed to the fair treatment of all of our employees,” noting that it “continuously” rolls out trainings and offers resources at company-owned restaurants to “promote continued compliance with all wage and hour laws.” Most of McDonald’s stores are owned and operated by franchisees. Those locations are encouraged to follow the same rules and procedures as corporate-owned locations.

Moreover, McDonald will not only be paying $26 million, they will also from time to time be training employees at corporate-owned California restaurants on their rights, like receiving 10-minute breaks for every two hours and will also be getting new uniforms at no cost when the old ones are worn out.

It should be noted that this is not the first time McDonald’s is being sued. In 2014, employees in Michigan and New York filed a class-action suits over wage theft. At the time, the company said it was “committed to undertaking a comprehensive investigation of the allegations and will take any necessary actions.” In 2016, the company agreed to pay 3.7 million dollars to settle  a separate wage theft class-action suit in California, where workers in franchise locations made similar accusations.
