The lawsuit filed against Menzies Aviation alleges that the aviation services company failed to provide their California employees with the legal required thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal break prior to their fifth hour of work. The complaint alleges "DEFENDANT was aware that PLAINTIFF and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members did not take their meal and rest periods because of the workload and time constraints imposed upon them by DEFENDANT but DEFENDANT refused to remit premium payments to these employees for their missed meal and rest breaks."

The Class action lawsuit also alleges that the company failed to reimburse their employees for business expenses incurred during the course of their employment. Specifically, PLAINTIFF and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members are allegedly required by DEFENDANT to use their personal cell phones for work related issues.

Code § 2802 expressly states that "an employer shall indemnify his or her employee for all necessary expenditures or losses incurred by the employee in direct consequence of the discharge of his or her duties, or of his or her obedience to the directions of the employer, even though unlawful, unless the employee, at the time of obeying the directions, believed them to be unlawful."
