The class action complaint claims that the company allegedly paid their non-exempt employees non-discretionary bonus wages based on their performance for the company. The Complaint further alleges that as a matter of law the various bonus wages received by Seasons Hospice'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 the company, the class action lawsuit claims other non-exempt employees working for Seasons Hospice were also not correctly paid all their overtime wages.

Additionally, the Complaint seeks penalties relating to alleged missed meal breaks because allegedly Seasons Hospice did not have a policy or practice which provided a full off-duty, thirty minute uninterrupted meal break to the Plaintiff and other California Class Members prior to their fifth (5th) hour of work.
