Securitas allegedly failed to provide all legally required thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal breaks to their security guard employees
San Diego, California (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
The San Diego employment lawyers at the law firm of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik announce an opportunity for current and former security guards of Securitas Security Services to join a class action lawsuit against the security service provider for allegedly implementing an unlawful meal break policy. Edwards, et al. v. Securitas Security Services USA, Inc. was filed on December 20, 2013 alleging meal break violations on behalf of the company's non-exempt, hourly employees working in California. The case is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California, Case No. 37-2013-00080841-CU-OE-CTL. The Complaint can be read here.
According to the class action complaint, Securitas allegedly failed to provide all legally required thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal breaks to their security guard employees who were paid on an hourly basis in California. Under the California Labor Code, and specifically California Labor Code Sections 226.7 and 512, employees who are classified as non-exempt and paid on an hourly basis are entitled to take 30 minute uninterrupted meal breaks that must be off-duty, meaning no work is required to be performed.
