24 Hour Fitness Class Action Discrimination Lawsuit
Nine current and former employees of 24 Hour Fitness in California have filed an employment discrimination class action lawsuit. The suit charges that 24 Hour Fitness discriminates against minority and female employees by failing to promote them into managerial positions and pay them equally in violation of California law.
The trial court has ordered these employees to submit to individual arbitration regarding their claims for damages (money) and, after the completion of this arbitration, will consider the claims on behalf of the class of minority and female employees for injunctive relief to change 24 Hour Fitness’s policies and practices. At this time, the Court is not permitting Plaintiffs to assert claims for damages on behalf of any individuals other than themselves.
