San Bernardino, California (PRWEB) August 11, 2016
The Riverside employment law attorneys at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit against New Prime, Inc. alleging that the trucking company failed to lawfully compensate their employees working as Truck Drivers for all their time spent under the company's control. The class action Complaint against New Prime, Inc. is currently pending in the San Bernardino County Superior Court, Case No. CIVDS1611884. To read a copy of the Complaint, please click here.
The class action Complaint alleges that New Prime failed to institute a policy which provided full off-duty, thirty minute uninterrupted meal breaks to Plaintiff and other California truck drivers. 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. As a result, truck drivers who drove for New Prime in California allegedly forfeited meal and rest breaks without additional compensation.
Additionally, the Class action lawsuit claims that the company's truck drivers performed manual tasks of transporting goods for New Prime and were allegedly paid on a piece-rate basis. The Complaint alleges that the truck drivers were not paid minimum 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-driving tasks, 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 lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount of back pay for the golden State truck drivers whop worked for New Prime.
