the lawsuit claims other non-exempt employees working for Planet Beauty were also not correctly paid all their overtime pay
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) February 01, 2015
On December 9, 2014 the Los Angeles employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action complaint alleging that Planet Beauty, Inc. and Beena Beauty Holding, Inc. failed to pay their California retail store employees the proper amount of overtime wages and allegedly failed to provide these employees with meal and rest periods in accordance with California law. The Planet Beauty, Inc. class action, Case No. BC566065 is currently pending in the Los Angeles County Superior Court for the State of California.
According to the class action complaint the beauty supply company paid their hourly employees commission wages based on their sales for the company. The Complaint further claims that as a matter of law the commission wages received by Planet Beauty'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 Planet Beauty, the lawsuit claims other non-exempt employees working for Planet Beauty were also not correctly paid all their overtime pay. The Complaint also seeks penalties for missed meal breaks because allegedly Planet Beauty did not have a policy to provide a thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal break prior to their employees' fifth (5th) hour of work.
