The class action Complaint filed against Estenson Logistics, LLC. by the San Diego labor law attorneys at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik alleges that Estenson Logistics, LLC. did not have a policy or practice which provided a full off-duty, thirty minute uninterrupted meal break to the Plaintiff and California Class Members.

As a result, Truck Drivers working for Estenson Logistics, LLC. allegedly forfeited meal and rest breaks without additional compensation.
Furthermore, the Complaint alleges that Plaintiff and other truck drivers working for the company in California performed the manual task of transporting goods for Estenson Logistics, LLC. and were allegedly paid on a piece-rate basis. The Complaint alleges that the truck drivers were not paid minimum wages and alleged federal overtime wages to which they were entitled to because of Defendant's alleged failure to record all time worked. Specifically, the Complaint claims that the truck drivers should have been paid minimum wages for their non-drive time, the time spent working during pre-trip and post trip inspections and time spent allegedly waiting for Defendant's loads to be ready for transport.
