DTG Operations allegedly failed to compensate the Plaintiff and other employees for missed meal and rest breaks.
Riverside, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2016
The Riverside labor law attorneys at the law firm of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit against the rental car company for allegedly implementing an unlawful, unfair and deceptive meal and rest break policy. The complaint against DTG Operations, Inc. was filed on February 17, 2016 alleging meal and rest break violations on behalf of the company's non-exempt, hourly employees working in California. The case is currently pending in the Riverside County Superior Court for the State of California, Case No. RIC1601865. The Complaint can be read here.
The Complaint alleges that DTG Operations, Inc. does not have a policy or practice which provides meal and rest breaks to their employees thereby resulting in a failure to provide all legally required off-duty meal and rest breaks to their employees who were paid on an hourly basis in California. The Complaint further alleges that DTG operations, inc. failed to compensate the Plaintiff and other employees for missed meal and rest breaks. The California Labor Code, and specifically California Labor Code Sections 226.7 and 512, state that employees who are classified as non-exempt and paid on an hourly basis are legally entitled to take 30 minute uninterrupted meal breaks, meaning no work is required to be performed during the required off-duty meal period.
