The Sodexo class action lawsuit alleges that the Plaintiff did not manage other employees and was therefore a "manager" in name only
San Joaquin, California (PRWEB) July 29, 2015
On May 4, 2015, the Sacramento employment law lawyers at Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a putative class action lawsuit against Sodexo, Inc. alleging the company failed to pay their Clinical Nutrition Managers overtime wages for their time worked in excess of eight hours (8) in a workday and/or forty (40) hours in a workweek. The Sodexo class action lawsuit Case No. 39-2015-00324813-CU-OE-STK is currently pending in the San Joaquin Superior Court for the State of California. The Complaint can be read by clicking here.
The putative class action lawsuit claims that the Plaintiff, who worked as a Clinical Nutrition Manager, spent most of her workday allegedly engaged in non-exempt work tasks, meaning tasks that allegedly should have entitled Plaintiff to overtime wages. According to the Complaint, Plaintiff and other Clinical Nutrition Managers engaged in the non-exempt tasks of providing day-to-day routine planning and development of patient diets in accordance with the attending physician's prescribed techniques, procedures, and specified standards. Additionally, the Complaint claims that the Plaintiff and other Clinical Nutrition Managers spent a vast majority of their day filling in pre-formatted checklists called "Gold Checks" and other templates that were provided by Sodexo. As a result, the Sodexo class action lawsuit alleges that the Plaintiff did not manage other employees and was therefore a "manager" in name only because she did not have managerial duties and should therefore have been paid overtime wages and provided with meal and rest periods in accordance with California law.
According to the Complaint, Sodexo, Inc. is the largest private employer of dietitians and the leading food and facilities management service company in North America.
