Former CI SECURITY SPECIALISTS (CISS) special events employees filed a putative class action lawsuit. The case seeks unpaid monies due to CI SECURITY SPECIALISTS special event workers, and Private Attorney General (PAGA) penalties. The legal action seeks to recover unpaid wages. The lawsuit is for workers of CI SECURITY SPECIALISTS, INC. who lived in California and were sent to work at special events such as concerts, music festivals (Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival), Lightning in a Bottle in Kern County), sports games, or horse races. Many the events were multi day music festivals many miles from the employees’ homes. The violations sued for apply to employees who were paid late even if they have been fully paid all their wages due.

The Employment Lawyers Group filed a lawsuit against CISS that seeks multiple labor penalties. Penalties are sought for late payments of wages, inadequate wage statements, and PAGA penalties including the failure to provide drinking water while security officers were stuck on posts. These penalties go back to 2019 in many instances, and 2022 in other instances. You may be a class member in this lawsuit if you worked for CISS at any time from July of 2019 until the present even if you were finally paid wages not originally paid on time.
Our law firm’s investigation into the case reveals CISS employees experienced paystub errors for which they are entitled to penalties. These problems with the paystubs that did not comply with California Labor Code Section 226 include some of the following or all of the following: a) failing to indicate the correct number of hours Plaintiffs and class worked for regular, overtime, and double time on their paystubs; b) failing to state the correct rate of pay for overtime, double time, and regular wages because the corresponding hours on the checks did not match the actual number of hours worked in those categories; c) checks exist which merely state an amount of money without any explanation. It is unknown if taxes are taken, whether the computation is gross or net, how many hours are being paid for, what the hourly rates are, whether the pay is overtime, double time, regular and for how many hours, the dates of the pay period, some manner of identifying the employee as (a)(7) requires; d) the name of the employer on the checks includes an entity named Diamond Pero, LLC which is not the employer and/or paystubs state, “Diamond Pero, LLC,” and sometimes “Diamond Pero, LLC L.F. CISS” when CISS is not the name of the Defendant, and Diamond Pero, LLC L.F. CISS purports to portray an employer that is not the employer and for which there is not a known legal entity in California; e) The address of the employer on the checks is also incorrect; e) the paystubs fail to correctly state the rate and number of meal and/or rest break penalties paid.
