In Lawson v. Consumer Portfolio Services, GBDH represents non-exempt Marketing Representatives, Field Marketing Sales Representatives, Regional Sales Managers, and Field Sales Representatives (“Reps”) employed by Consumer Portfolio Services (CPS) in California.  The case alleges that Reps were misclassified as exempt from the California overtime laws, and are owed unpaid overtime wages, as well as relief for other wage-related violations.  The lawsuit was filed on September 24, 2018, in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Orange.
