The Riverside labor law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP filed a class action lawsuit against Inter-Con Security Systems, alleging that the company failed to properly calculate overtime compensation for their hourly employees. Furthermore, the complaint alleges that Inter-Con Security Systems failed to provide mandatory meal and rest breaks to its security guard employees. The Inter-Con Security Systems lawsuit, Case No. RIC1801134, is currently pending in the Riverside County Superior Court for the State of California. A copy of the complaint can be accessed by clicking here.

The class action complaint claims that the company paid their security guard employees a non-discretionary incentive wage based upon their performance for the company. The complaint further claims that the company also allegedly failed to provide Plaintiff and the other members of the California Class with complete and accurate wage statements which failed to show, among other things, the correct overtime rate for overtime worked, including, work performed in excess of eight (8) hours in a workday and/or forty (40) hours in any workweek, and the correct penalty payments or missed meal and rest periods. Cal. Lab. Code § 226 provides that every employer shall furnish each of his or her employees with an accurate itemized wage statement in writing showing, among other things, gross wages earned and all applicable hourly rates in effect during the pay period and the corresponding amount of time worked at each hourly rate.

According to the class action complaint, the company's security guard employees were also allegedly unable to take off duty meal breaks due to their rigorous work schedules. California labor laws require an employer to provide an employee required to perform work for more than five (5) hours during a shift with, a thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal break prior to the end of the employee's fifth (5th) hour of work and a second uninterrupted meal break when employees are required to work ten (10) hours. The complaint alleges that the company did not provide their security guard employees who forfeited meal breaks additional compensation under the law.
