Peter Wright and Michelle Trame v. Adventures Rolling Cross-Country, Inc., et al, Marin County Superior Court
Rudy Exelrod Zieff & Lowe and co-counsel, Bryan Schwartz Law, filed a proposed class action complaint against Adventures Rolling Cross-Country, Inc. ("ARCC") on February 17, 2012 alleging failure to pay basic minimum wages to workers who work chaperoning kids on expensive trips abroad and domestically in violation of federal and state law.
The lawsuit alleges that Trip Leaders undergo approximately 10 days "training" in Mill Valley, California, typically spending 10 hours per day working. Thereafter they depart for trips ranging from two weeks to 90 days. During the trips, in which they are essentially babysitting a large group of teens, they are on-call 24 hours a day - responsible for the safety of the kids. Trip Leaders actively work anywhere from 12-16 hours a day with little to no time at rest. The plaintiffs are seeking unpaid minimum and overtime wages and other compensation on behalf of current and former Trip Leaders throughout the country.
