San Diego, California (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
On August 28, 2014 the San Diego employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a lawsuit alleging that Hydro-Scape Products, Inc. failed to pay their hourly employees the correct amount of overtime wages and allegedly failed to provide these employees with meal and rest periods. Martinez, et al. vs. Hydro-Scape Products, Inc., Case No. 37-2014-00029157 is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California.
According to the class action complaint the company paid their non-exempt employees a non-discretionary bonus wage based on their performance for the company. The Complaint further alleges that as a matter of law the bonus pay received by Hydro-Scape's employees should have been included in the employees hourly rates, before the company calculated their employees' correct overtime rates of pay. As a result of the alleged illegal overtime calculations conducted by Hydro-Scape, the class action claims other non-exempt employees working for Hydro-Scape were also not correctly paid all their overtime wages. The Complaint also seeks penalties relating to missed meal breaks because allegedly the company did not have a policy to provide a thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal break prior to their employees' fifth (5th) hour of work.
