A new lawsuit brought against the chain by a former employee alleges that In-n-Out violated California labor laws in several ways detrimental to the health and wellbeing of its employees. Luis Becerra, who worked for the iconic burger brand for five years before being terminated in May of 2020, said that his employer discriminated against him for taking lawful sick leave, failed to pay him wages upon termination, failed to provide accurate wage statements, and failed to provide personnel files in a timely fashion.
