SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) February 13, 2018
The San Francisco labor law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP filed a class action lawsuit against Overton Security Services, Inc., alleging that the company failed to properly calculate overtime compensation for their hourly employees. Furthermore, the complaint alleges that Overton Security Services failed to provide mandatory meal and rest breaks to its security guard employees. The Overton Security Services lawsuit, Case No. RG18891882, is currently pending in the Alameda County Superior Court for the State of California. A copy of the complaint can be accessed by clicking here.
The class action complaint alleges PLAINTIFF and other California Class Members were required to work on security-related incidences at the end of their work shifts while off the clock and DEFENDANT allegedly failed to pay PLAINTIFF and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members for the work they performed for DEFENDANT after the end of their work shifts. PLAINTIFF and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members allegedly forfeited overtime worked by regularly working without their time being accurately recorded and without compensation at the applicable overtime rates.
According to the class action complaint's allegations, the company's security guard employees were also allegedly unable to take off duty meal breaks due to their rigorous work schedules. California labor laws require an employer to provide an employee required to perform work for more than five (5) hours during a shift with, a thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal break prior to the end of the employee's fifth (5th) hour of work and a second uninterrupted meal break when employees are required to work ten (10) hours. The complaint alleges that the company did not provide their security guard employees who forfeited meal breaks additional compensation under the law.
