The San Francisco labor law attorneys at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug and Bhowmik lodged a putative class action lawsuit against Prime Communications of California for allegedly failing to provide their hourly workers in California with the legally required thirty minute uninterrupted meal periods. The class action also alleges that Prime Communications failed to pay all overtime worked by their California employees and allegedly failed to properly reimburse California employees for necessary business expenses incurred. The Prime Communications lawsuit, Case No. 16CIV01563 is currently pending in the San Mateo County Superior Court. To view a copy of the Complaint, click here.
The lawsuit filed against Prime Communications claims that the company failed to accurately "record and pay Plaintiff and other California Class Members for the actual amount of time these employees worked, including overtime worked." 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 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 golden state employees working for Prime Communications were not provided thirty minute uninterrupted meal breaks prior to 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.
