San Diego, California (PRWEB) November 15, 2013
On November 4, 2013 the San Diego employment lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a Lawsuit alleging Time Warner failed to pay their Field Technicians the proper amount of overtime wages. Hildebrandt, et al. vs. TWC Administration LLC, Case No. RIC 1312393 is currently pending in the Riverside County Superior Court for the State of California.
According to the class action lawsuit filed against Time Warner, the company allegedly did not allow their Field Service Technicians to start recording their time until they reached their first assigned work site for the day. The Complaint alleges that Time Warner consistently required the Field Service Technicians to work of the clock without paying them for all the time these employees were under Time Warner's control performing pre-shift and post-shift duties. Specifically, the Complaint claims that Time Warner required their Field Service Technicians to log onto their laptop computers from home and perform work before heading out to their first job site of the day all the while being off the clock and not getting paid.
The attorney representing the proposed class of Time Warner Field Technicians, Norm Blumenthal stated, “Any time an employee is under the control of their employer and is required to perform work, however slight, the employee must be paid for that compensable work time.”
