The pending class action lawsuit filed against Brinks Incorporated claims that the company did not have a uniform policy and practice to pay their employees the correct overtime wages for all overtime worked in accordance with applicable law. Under the California Labor Code, an employee who is classified as non-exempt and is paid on an hourly basis must be paid overtime wages for time worked in excess of eight hours in a workday and time worked over forty hours in a workweek.The Complaint also alleges that Brinks Incorporated did not provide their employees with accurate itemized wage statements in writing showing, among other things, gross wages earned and all applicable hourly rates in effect during the pay period and the corresponding amount of time worked at each hourly rate.
In addition, the Complaint alleges that the employees working at Brinks Incorporated were not always able to take their thirty minute uninterrupted meal breaks before their fifth hour of work due to their rigorous work schedules. California law requires employers to provide their non-exempt employees paid on an hourly basis with thirty minute meal periods before the employee works five hours. The penalty for failing to provide adequate meal breaks is one hour of pay under the California Labor Code.
