The Complaint further alleges that as a matter of law the various bonus wages received by Tumi's employees should have been included in the employees hourly rates for the purposes of paying their employees the correct overtime wages

On July 1, 2015 the San Diego employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit alleging that Tumi Stores, Inc. failed to pay their hourly employees the correct amount of overtime wages and allegedly failed to provide their California employees with meal and rest periods in accordance with the California Labor Code. The Tumi Stores, Inc. lawsuit, Case No. 37-2015-00029157 is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California.
According to the class action complaint the company allegedly paid their non-exempt employees non-discretionary bonus wages including "Tumi Bucks," based on their performance for the company. The Complaint further alleges that as a matter of law the various bonus wages received by Tumi's employees should have been included in the employees' hourly rates for the purposes of paying their employees the correct overtime wages. As a result of the alleged illegal overtime calculations conducted by Tumi, the class action lawsuit claims other non-exempt employees working for Tumi were also not correctly paid all their overtime wages. The Complaint also seeks penalties relating to alleged missed meal breaks because allegedly Tumi did not have a policy to provide their retail store employees thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal breaks prior to their fifth (5th) hour of work.
