The San Francisco labor law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP filed a class action lawsuit against Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, alleging that the company failed to properly calculate overtime compensation for their hourly employees. Furthermore, the complaint alleges that Kaiser Foundation Hospitals failed to provide mandatory meal and rest breaks to its employees. The Kaiser Foundation Hospitals lawsuit, Case No. 18CV327308, is currently pending in the Santa Clara County Superior Court for the State of California. A copy of the complaint can be accessed by clicking here.

The class action complaint alleges Kaiser Foundation Hospitals systematically, unlawfully and unilaterally failed to accurately calculate wages for overtime worked by PLAINTIFF and other members of the CALIFORNIA CLASS in order to avoid paying these employees the correct overtime compensation. As a result, PLAINTIFF and the other members of the CALIFORNIA CLASS allegedly forfeit wages due them for working overtime without compensation at the correct overtime rates.

According to the class action complaint's allegations, the company's 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 employees who forfeited meal breaks additional compensation under the law.
