DESCRIPTION OF THE LITIGATION

The lawsuit is known as Walsh v. CorePower Yoga, LLC., No. 3:16-cv-05610-MEJ, and is pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

The lawsuit claims that Yoga For Trade ("YFT") Cleaners were not paid minimum wage as required under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and the California Labor Code. It also claims that Studio Experience Team ("SET") Cleaners were unlawfully required to purchase a CorePower membership as a condition of their employment, in violation of the California Labor Code. The lawsuit also claims that CorePower failed to pay wages due upon termination, failed to furnish and keep accurate and itemized wage statements, and committed unfair business practices in violation of California law. Finally, the lawsuit claims that these violations merit penalties under the California Labor Code Private Attorneys’ General Act.

CorePower denies these allegations and denies that it violated the law in any way. The Court has not decided who is right and who is wrong, but is deciding whether to approve the settlement reached between the parties.
