Rite Aid seatcase
By the end of my shift, my feet would be throbbing and swollen.
My back would hurt so badly after my shift that I would have difficulty getting in my car, and it would hurt for about 3 hours afterwards.
Because I had to stand so much, and suffered severe knee pain, my doctor prescribed pain medicine just so I could make it through the workday.

California Wage Order 7-2001, section 14(A) states:

“All working employees shall be provided with suitable seats when the nature of their work reasonably permits the use of seats.”

California Labor Code section 2699(f)(2) requires an employer to pay a penalty of $100 per pay period per aggrieved employee for the first violation and $200 per pay period per aggrieved employee for each subsequent violation.
