GSL's uniform policy and practice failed to compensate these employees for all their overtime hours worked.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 26, 2012
On September 11, 2012, the San Francisco labor law firm Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit Golden State Lumber, Inc. (“Golden State”) alleging Golden State failed to calculate and pay their employees the correct amount of overtime wages.
California labor laws provide that non-discretionary bonuses must be factored into the calculation of non-exempt employees’ regular rate of pay for purposes of calculating their true overtime rate of pay.
The complaint against Golden State alleges that the company has a compensatory payment system that includes non-discretionary bonuses, and they allegedly failed to account for these bonuses when calculating the overtime rates of their employees. Moreover, the complaint alleges that because of these miscalculations, Golden State did not pay their employees the full amount of overtime wages that they were owed.
