Legoland Facing Lawsuit For Labor Violations

by The Editors on January 7, 2022

Legoland California is reportedly being class action sued by the San Diego employment law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP for allegedly violating the California Labor Code.

The complaint alleges Legoland California, LLC failed to compensate employees for all the time they were under Defendant’s control. Employees were from time to time allegedly required to work longer than four hours without being provided their ten minute rest periods. Additionally, employees were allegedly required to work for more than five hours without receiving an off-duty meal break.

We didn’t call Legoland for comment, but we’re certain a Legoland spokesperson would tell us that they are diligent about following all the laws of the State of California and that they don’t comment on current litigation. For all the official details, please click the link.

Inewsource has a great, in-depth story by Cody Dulaney about how San Diego County Police Departments are using the data they collect from license plate reading cameras illegally–including, but not limited to, our own Carlsbad Police Department. 

inewsource found police in Carlsbad, Coronado, Escondido, La Mesa and Oceanside had been sharing location data collected in those jurisdictions with hundreds of other agencies across the country. Small police departments in states like Florida, New York, New Jersey and Illinois have been given access to information about drivers in San Diego County. State law says license plate data can only be shared with agencies in California.

To their credit it appears that the Carlsbad Police Department has changed several of their policies after being questioned about them. But still, if you care about how Carlsbad police are using technology to follow you around 24-7, then you really should read this report.
