The class action lawsuit was filed by the San Diego employment law attorneys at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik.

The class action lawsuit entitled, Altman, et al. v. Solarcity Corporation, Case No. 37-2014-00023450-CU-OE-CTL is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California. A copy of the most recent complaint filed in the case can be read here.
The class action Complaint alleges that the Field Energy Advisors mostly engaged in non-exempt tasks throughout their workday, including setting up promotional tables in big box retail stores across California in order to qualify leads using pre-formatted templates provided to them by Solarcity. The Complaint asserts that as a result of the finite set of job tasks that the Field Energy Advisors were required to do on a daily basis, these employees should have allegedly been paid overtime pay for their hours worked in excess of eight (8) in a workday and hours worked in excess of forty (40) in any workweek.
The San Diego employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik dedicate their practice to helping employees who have been wrongfully classified as salaried employees exempt from receiving overtime pay and other claims including unpaid wages, missed meal and rest periods, unpaid commission wages, and wrongful termination.
