Sacramento, California (PRWEB) August 31, 2015
On August 11, 2015, the Sacramento labor law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit against Conner Logistics, Inc. claiming that the company failed to lawfully compensate their employees working as Truck Drivers for all their time spent working and allegedly failed to provide all legally required meal and rest periods under California law. The pending class action lawsuit against Conner Logistics, Inc., is currently pending in the Fresno County Superior Court, Case No 15CECG02546. To read a copy of the Complaint, please click here.
The Complaint alleges that Plaintiff and other employees working as truck drivers for the company in California performed the manual task of transporting goods for Conner Logistics, Inc. and were allegedly paid on a piece-rate basis. Additionally, the Complaint claims 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 alleges that the truck drivers should have been paid minimum wages for their non-driving 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.
The pending class action lawsuit against Conner Logistics, Inc. also alleges that the transportation company 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. The Complaint claims that the company's alleged failure to provide the legally required meal and rest breaks is evidenced by their business records which contain no evidence of these breaks. Consequently, truck driver employees working for Conner Logistics, Inc. allegedly forfeited meal and rest breaks without additional compensation.
