A company that ended up on the losing end of a multi-million dollar lawsuit
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 February 2019
To make this short, GoodLife Fitness ended up on the losing end of a nationwide multi-million dollar lawsuit. The lawsuit was brought forth because they refused to pay employees for the full hours they worked, broke labor laws, refused to pay overtime, insisted on mandatory hours spent in the club that employees were never compensated for and fostered a work environment that was so toxic that the personal trainers in Toronto, Ontario unionized so they would get better working conditions and fair pay for the work they were doing.
