Santa Clara, California (PRWEB) June 17, 2014
On May 29, 2014, the San Francisco employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of current and former Corporate Sales Representatives, against Intacct Corporation for allegedly failing to pay these employees overtime wages. Hosein, et al. v. Intacct Corporation, Case No. 114CV265887 is currently pending in the Santa Clara County Superior Court for the State of California. You may view a copy of the most recent Complaint here.
The lawsuit alleges that Intacct was required to pay its Corporate Sales Representatives overtime wages for their overtime worked. The lawsuit claims that the Corporate Sales Representatives working for the software company failed to meet all the criteria under any of the exemptions to overtime pay in California. As a result, the lawsuit alleges that these employees should have been paid for all the overtime hours they worked for Intacct and should have been afforded the opportunity to take thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal periods.
According to California Law, an employer must pay overtime to sales related employees, including Account Executives, unless the employee:
Spends more than 50% of their time outside the employer’s place of business (home office can be considered employer’s place of business) principally involved in selling a good or a service (Outside Sales Exemption); or
Earns more than 1 ½ times the minimum wage for all hours worked AND more than 50% of the employee’s compensation is derived from commission wages AND the employee works in the mercantile industry (covered by Wage Order 7) or in a professional, technical, clerical, mechanical or similar occupation (covered by Wage Order 4)(Inside Sales Exemption).
