    A janitorial airline contractor at Los Angeles International Airport and more than a dozen of its employees have settled a case alleging their supervisor improperly prohibited them from speaking Spanish during work hours and breaks.

    Attorneys for lead plaintiff Irma Espinoza and the other Gate Gourmet workers filed a notice of dismissal of the lawsuit last week in Los Angeles Superior Court and a notice of settlement in March. No terms were divulged.

    In May 2015, the janitors sued Gate Gourmet — which provides cabin cleaning and restocking services to Delta Air Lines at LAX — accusing the company of failing to prevent the discriminatory policy.

    The suit alleged unlawful workplace language policy, harassment, failure to prevent discrimination and national origin discrimination.

    PETERSBURG, Va. -- Cleanup continues at a medical waste services building in Petersburg, where an explosion caused the building to partially collapse last month.

    The explosion at Curtis Bay Medical Waste Services in the 1900 block of Puddledock Road injured three people.


    Two weeks later, part of the building is still unsafe for investigators who are still trying to figure out what exactly happened that day.

    Howard Burnette says he won’t ever forget March 31, 2017.

    “'It was a very, very scary day,” he said.

    Burnette, who works next door to Curtis Bay Medical Waste Services, was outside changing tires when a piece of debris flew across his face.

    Over the last month, janitorial and cleaning supply companies have been targeted by scammers in six states – Montana, Texas, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Illinois and Maine. The scheme involves, Waterford Management, a company with a bogus address listed in Minneapolis, MN. The company orders cleaning supplies, either by phone or online, to be picked up by a third-party shipper. The company keeps prospective vendor’s suspicions at bay with spotless credit applications and plenty of supporting documentation. They also created three fictitious online entities to vouch for them as references and appear to have a bank account Minnesota. The company kept a small amount of funds in that account, so the bank will confirm that they do have an account there. To date victimized businesses have lost more than $150,000 in this scam.


    Be on the alert for anyone who tries to place an order for products in the name of this company. Inform employees to look out for this scam and what should be done. Best Practice: Require any company placing an order for the first time to pay upfront via credit card. In this way, you will be able to confirm payment before shipping the order.

    A former Alabama corporation providing janitorial services for commercial businesses across the southeast agreed Thursday to pay a former employee $70,000 to settle a federal lawsuit, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said.


    According to the lawsuit filed by the EEOC in June 2013, Birmingham-based Rite Way Services, Inc. violated federal law when the company terminated an employee in retaliation for participating in an internal investigation concerning a co-worker's sexual harassment complaint. Mekeva Tennort, who was employed by Rite Way to perform janitorial duties at Biloxi High School in Mississippi, made a statement to supervisors who were investigating the complaint in August 2011....

    Toilet with seat up

    Toilets come with dirty reputations – but the average loo seat only has around 
    50 bacteria per square inch, which is less than most chopping boards. Aim to clean around the toilet bowl every day, and give your bathroom a proper clean once a week.

    The city’s existing deal with ETI was the most high-profile example of how the city was lagging behind on its promise to pay workers on most city contracts a "living wage" of at least $10.55 an hour and give them at least six paid days off each year.


    The workers now employed on the contract make the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour to clean City Hall, various courthouses, New Orleans Recreation Development Commission centers and New Orleans Police Department buildings.

    The janitorial-services industry has drawn attention for its poor working conditions. Not only do janitors frequently work alone at night, they are vulnerable to sexual harassment and often fear retaliation for reporting harassers, according to a University of California, Berkeley, report.

    Janitorial employers will soon have to register with the state labor commissioner, and the list of employers will be publicly available through a database.

    Additionally, the new law directs the state to create a "sexual violence and harassment prevention training" program.
