Plaintiff and the other members of the California Class [were] underpaid during their employment with Defendant
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
On July 27, 2012, the San Francisco employment attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action complaint against Protransport-1 for alleged unpaid overtime wages. Rodriguez, et al. vs. Protransport-1, LLC, Case No. CGC-12-522733 is currently pending in the San Francisco County Superior Court.
According to the class action complaint filed against Protransport-1, the ambulance service provider paid their emergency medical technicians commission wages based on their performance for Protransport-1. According to the lawsuit, Protransport-1 “failed and still fails to include the commission compensation as part of the employees’ ‘regular rate of pay’ for purposes of calculating overtime pay.” The complaint also alleges that the failure to include the commission compensation in the regular rate of pay for the purpose of calculating the correct overtime rate, "has resulted in a systematic underpayment of overtime compensation" to the emergency medical technicians.
Moreover, the class action complaint filed against Protransport-1 alleges that as a result of Protransport's failure to correctly calculate and pay these employees the correct overtime rate, “the wage statements issued to Plaintiff and other California Class Members violate California law, and in particular, Labor Code Section 226(a).”
