The class action complaint filed against Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford claims that the hospital failed to pay overtime at the correct overtime rates. Under the California Labor Code, an employee who is classified as non-exempt and is paid on an hourly basis must be paid overtime wages at one-and-one-half times the employees' regular rate of pay for time worked in excess of eight hours in a workday and time worked over forty hours in a workweek.
The Complaint also alleges that the employees working at the hospital were not always able to take their thirty minute uninterrupted meal breaks before their fifth hour of work. California law requires employers to provide their non-exempt employees paid on an hourly basis with thirty minute meal periods before the employee works five hours.
