On Friday, dozens of Santa Clara County social workers filed labor complaints against the county and their union. Their claims are that between 2011 and 2014, they were paid a lower rate for overtime than their contract stated. A settlement was offered last November for $3.2 million, however, that would only leave about $2,900 for each of the 1,100 members.
Attorney Christopher Banys of Banys P.C., a Palo Alto lawyer representing 55 of the social workers, quoted, “Our goal is to get our clients paid what they are owed and nothing more.” Some workers’ paychecks are short over $100,000 over the past years.
