The Riverside employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit alleging that United Road Towing, Inc. failed to pay their tow truck driver employees the correct amount of overtime wages and allegedly failed to provide their these workers with meal and rest periods in accordance with the California Labor Code. The United Road Towing, Inc. lawsuit, Case No. CIVDS81614323 is currently pending in the Riverside County Superior Court for the State of California. A copy of the complaint can be read here.

According to the class action lawsuit United Road Towing provides towing, recovery, impound, and vehicle management solutions to private and public sectors. The Complaint states that the company allegedly paid their tow truck drivers non-discretionary incentive wages based on their performance for United Road Towing. The lawsuit states that as a matter of law the incentive wages received by the tow truck drivers 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 United Road Towing, the class action lawsuit claims other tow truck drivers working for United Road Towing were also not correctly paid all their overtime wages.

Additionally, the class action lawsuit seeks penalties relating to alleged missed meal and rest breaks because allegedly United Road Towing did not have a policy to provide their tow truck drivers thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal breaks prior to their fifth (5th) hour of work.
