The California overtime lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action Complaint against Ross Dress For Less, Inc. on June 06, 2012, alleging that the company violated the California Labor Code by failing to pay their non-exempt employees for all hours worked. Veloz, et al. v. Ross Dress For Loss, Inc., Case No. BC485949 is currently pending in the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
The Ross Dress For Less employees allege in the wage and hour class action Complaint that they were forced to first clock out of Ross' timekeeping system and then report to the front of the store in order to subject themselves to security searches for stolen goods. According to the Complaint, "Ross failed to pay for this work time which added 10 minutes or more of unpaid work in a day per employee."
Founding partner Norman B. Blumenthal says, “When employees are forced to remain on the premises for security checks, they are still under their employer’s control, and should be compensated for that work time.”
