Sanford Heisler, LLP and Co-Counsel from Kastner Kim LLP File a Class Action Complaint in U.S. District Court in San Francisco against Oracle

Sanford Heisler, LLP, along with co-counsel from Kastner Kim LLP, filed a class action complaint in U.S. District Court in San Francisco against Oracle, alleging that the company has stiffed its sales employees of millions in earned commission wages by retroactively changing commission contracts. The complaint alleges that Oracle retroactively increases quotas or decreases commission rates on past sales in order to pay sales employees less than what their existing compensation plans require. The lawsuit, Johnson v. Oracle America, Inc., seeks unpaid commission wages and waiting time penalties and requests an injunction and other relief on behalf of a class of California sales employees. The class alleges that Oracle "re-plans" employees to reduce commissions earned on completed sales going back to any time of Oracle's choosing. When it "re-plans" employees after commission wages have already been paid, according to the complaint, Oracle claws back prior payments by withholding newly earned commissions until the employees have paid the company back. The complaint also describes Oracle's retroactive re-plans as a willful and systematic scheme designed to align commissions with financial forecasts and bottom line goals. By reducing and withholding commissions in such fashion, according to the complaint, Oracle's commission policies and practices violate numerous California Labor Code requirements and have resulted in damages of over $150 million to California employees over a four-year period.

The U.S. Department of Labor Sues Oracle America Inc. for Discriminatory Employment Practices

The U.S. Department of Labor has filed a lawsuit against Oracle America, Inc. alleging the company has a systemic practice of paying Caucasian male workers more than their counterparts in the same job title, which led to pay discrimination against female, African American and Asian employees. The suit also challenges Oracles systemic practice of favoring Asian workers in its recruiting and hiring practices for product development and other technical roles, which resulted in hiring discrimination against non-Asian applicants. Oracle designs, manufactures, and sells software and hardware products, as well as offers services related to its products to the federal government. The lawsuit filed by the department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs is the result of an OFCCP compliance review of Oracles equal employment opportunity practices at its Redwood Shores headquarters. During the investigation which began in 2014 Oracle also refused to comply with the agency’s routine requests for employment data and records. For example, Oracle refused to provide prior-year compensation data for all employees, complete hiring data for certain business lines, and employee complaints of discrimination. OFCCP attempted for almost a year to resolve Oracles alleged discrimination violations before filing the suit. Oracle has received hundreds of millions in federal government contracts. As a federal contractor, Oracle is prohibited from engaging in employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity or national origin and is required to take affirmative action to ensure that equal employment opportunity is provided to applicants and employees in all aspects of employment. If Oracle fails to provide relief as ordered in the lawsuit, OFCCP requests that all its government contracts be canceled and that it be debarred from entering into future federal contracts. Filed with the Office of Administrative Law Judges, the complaint asks the court to enjoin Oracle permanently from discriminating against females, African Americans and Asians in compensation practices and against African American, Hispanic and Caucasian applicants in hiring practices. OFCCP is also seeking complete relief for the affected class including lost wages, stock, interest, front wages, salary adjustments, promotions and all other lost benefits of employment and a reform of discriminatory policies.
