Defendant fails to compensate Plaintiffs . . . for any of their time spent during the money deposit process
San Diego, California (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
The San Diego unpaid overtime wages attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action Complaint against Sunset Parking Services and LAZ Parking California ("Sunset") on August 2, 2012, alleging that the company violated the California Labor Code by failing to pay their non-exempt valet employees for all hours worked. Bowden, et al. v. Sunset Parking Services, LLC and LAZ Parking California, LLC, Case No. 37-2012-00101751 is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court.
The Sunset employees allege in the wage and hour class action Complaint that they were forced to first clock out of Sunset's timekeeping system and then report to a location specified by Sunset in order to drop off money collected during their regularly scheduled shifts. According to the Complaint, "[the money drop process] often adds 20 minutes or more of unpaid work per shift for Plaintiffs and other California Class Members."
Founding partner Norman B. Blumenthal stated, “When employees are forced to report to a location to drop of money, they are still under their employer’s control, and should be compensated for that work time.”
