Labor Commissioner Cites Southern California Warehouse Over $1 Million For Wage Theft

Additionally, the Labor Commissioner's investigation revealed that Quetico penalized workers who complained about the unpaid wages. A retaliation investigation concluded that the employer had issued disciplinary memos and suspended three workers who filed complaints with the Labor Commissioner. The workers' records have been corrected and Quetico has made a commitment to make permanent changes to the punch card policy to avoid further labor law violations.

Quetico's Chino facilities move products for big box retailers with merchandise including shoes, apparel and electronics. The workers package merchandise that is then sent out to stores and other distribution centers.

The California Department of Industrial Relations' Division of Labor Standards Enforcement  adjudicates wage claims, investigates discrimination and public works complaints, and enforces state labor law and Industrial Welfare Commission wage orders. Information on the functions of the California Labor Commissioner is available on the DIR website as well as on  Facebook and  Twitter.

Employees with work-related questions or complaints may call the California Workers' Information Hotline at (866) 924-9757 for recorded information on a variety of work related topics.
