Relevant Ads failed to accurately record and pay Plaintiffs for all hours worked, including overtime hours worked, before their scheduled shift starts
San Diego, California (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
On August 1, 2012 the San Diego employment lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action Complaint against Local Splash, a Relevant Ads, Inc. company (“Relevant Ads”) for wage and hour violations, specifically for allegedly violating California labor laws in regards to overtime pay and requiring their employees to work off-the-clock without being paid for all their hours worked. Poole, et al. vs. Relevant Ads, Inc., Case No. 30-2012-00587816 is currently pending in Orange County Superior Court for the state of California.
According to the class action Complaint filed against Relevant Ads, the company required their employees to routinely perform work off-the-clock for which they were not compensated for. Specifically, the unpaid overtime lawsuit claims that Relevant Ads fails to pay their employees for "work time which is spent logging onto computers, initializing software applications, and preparing to take and/or make phone calls." As a result, the Complaint alleges Plaintiff and California Class Members were consistently not paid all overtime wages during their employment with Relevant Ads.
The unpaid overtime Complaint further claims that as a result of Relevant Ads' failure to record all hours worked by members of the California Class, Relevant Ads allegedly failed to provide the Plaintiff and the other members of the California Class with complete and accurate wage statements which failed to show, among other things, the correct number of all hours worked and the correct overtime rate for overtime hours worked.
Founding partner of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug, & Bhowmik, Norman Blumenthal asserts, “the failure to pay employees for off-the-clock work is one of the more common violations of federal and state wage and hour laws.”
