An article published on law.com on December 5, 2018, Employers Face Open Questions After Landmark ‘Dynamex’ Labor Ruling, highlights RBGG’s representation of the plaintiff in a suit against Lime, a company that rents electric scooters, alleging that the company avoids paying its “Juicers” for the time and money they spend locating and recharging Lime scooters and returning them to service.

RBGG’s Gay Grunfeld is quoted in the article: ““The lawsuit itself is attacking the myth of the gig economy that these workers are receiving flexibility and the ability to work several jobs. They can’t,” said Gay Grunfeld, managing partner at Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld in San Francisco, which is representing the Lime plaintiff with the Chicago firm Waskowski Johnson Yohalem. “The Dynamex decision squarely applies here.”
