According to the class action complaint's allegations, the company's security guard employees were 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.

The class action complaint also alleges DEFENDANT allegedly fails to provide PLAINTIFF and the other members of the CALIFORNIA CLASS with complete and accurate wage statements which fails to show, among other things, the correct wages paid for missed meal and rest breaks. 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.
