The San Diego labor law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP, filed a class action lawsuit against Compass Bank, alleging that the company failed to properly calculate overtime compensation for their hourly employees. Furthermore, the complaint alleges that Compass Bank, failed to provide mandatory meal and rest breaks to its employees. The Compass Bank lawsuit, Case No. 37-2019-00024475-CU-OE-CTL, is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California. A copy of the complaint can be accessed by clicking here.

The class action complaint alleges that the company paid their non-exempt employees a non-discretionary incentive wage based upon their performance for the company, including, but not limited to, cash in lieu of health benefits and referral bonuses. The complaint further alleges that the company 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 non-exempt 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.
