The lawsuit charges the woman's clothing retailer with allegedly failing to allow their employees to take thirty minute uninterrupted meal periods
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
The San Diego employment lawyers at the law firm of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik announce an opportunity for current and former employees of Lorna Jane USA, Inc. to join a class action lawsuit against the clothing retailer for allegedly implementing unlawful meal break policies. Doyle, et al. v. Lorna Jane USA, Inc. was filed on February 25, 2014 alleging meal break violations on behalf of the company's non-exempt employees in California who were paid on an hourly basis. The case is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California, Case No. 37-2014-00004296-CU-OE-CTL.
According to the class action complaint, Lorna Jane allegedly failed to provide all legally required thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal breaks to their non-exempt employees paid on an hourly basis in California.
Under the California Labor Code, non-exempt employees in California are entitled to receive a thirty minute uninterrupted off-duty meal period prior to the start of their fifth hour of work for the day. If an employee fails to receive their full thirty minute meal period, the employer is liable to pay the employee a penalty of one hour of that employee's pay.
The San Diego labor lawyers at Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik are now ready to represent other Lorna Jane employees.
