We are presently pursuing a number of employee payroll class action lawsuits against major Canadian hotel owners, which are at various stages of those legal proceedings, with a brief summary of the specific class action lawsuits being set out below together with additional information and resources that have been made available. These class action lawsuits emanate from the province of Alberta, although in specific cases they also pertain to hotel employees in other parts of Canada that were subjected to employment underpayments and related demands that were comparable to those incurred by the defendant company's Alberta employees.

Marriott Hotels and Starwood Hotels

A proposed class action has been brought against Marriott International Inc., Marriott Hotels of Canada Inc. and Starwood Canada ULC, for their purported underpayment of former and current hotel employees with respect to overtime pay, vacation pay, general holiday pay, general holiday pay when working, vacation pay on termination of employment, termination pay in lieu of notice and severance pay as required by the applicable provincial Employment Standards legislation and case law precedent, given the companies' alleged over-reliance upon foreign payroll systems and software to the hotel employees' financial detriment.
