Just when you thought it was going to be a regular day at the office, your boss starts yelling at you in a staff meeting, embarrassing you in front of your co-workers and causing steam to billow from your ears while you grind your teeth in silence.
In an employment discrimination dispute between a garbage truck driver and his employer of 32 years, the district court's judgment is: 1) reversed as to grant of summary judgment to employer-defendant on the wrongful termination claim under California law based on age discrimination and retaliation, where the district court erred in holding that plaintiff failed to establish a prima facie age discrimination claim; and 2) affirmed as to the district court's denial of plaintiff's request for leave to amend the complaint.
In a putative class action brought by truck drivers against their employer, raising a variety of statutory and common law labor claims, the district court's interlocutory order dismissing most but not all of plaintiffs' claims is affirmed where the court's rules and precedent require that plaintiff's right to appeal is deemed waived.
