Turman, et al. v. Koji’s Japan, Inc., Arthur J. Parent, Jr.

Civ. No. 30-2010-00425532-CU-OE-CXC (Orange Co.): In May 2021, Plaintiffs won final approval of a $2.2 million settlement to be paid personally by the former owner of Koji’s restaurants, to compensate 378 former low-wage workers who ceased working for Koji’s nearly a decade ago. In November 2017, the California Court of Appeal issued Turman v. Superior Court (2017) 17 Cal.App.5th 969, clarifying that an individual owner/officer/director of a defunct corporation (Parent) can be liable for wage violations in California, as a joint employer or alter ego. In February 2018, the trial court on remand certified class wage claims against Parent, and in July 2018, the trial court found Parent a joint employer under all federal and California causes of action.
