LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) February 20, 2023
The Southern California labor law attorneys at Zakay Law Group, APLC and JCL Law Firm, APC, filed a class action complaint against Forest Lawn Mortuary & Forest Lawn Memorial-Park Association (hereinafter, collectively, "Forest Lawn") for allegedly failing to provide meal and rest breaks. The class action lawsuit, Case No. 23STCV02200, is currently pending in the Los Angeles County Superior Court of the State of California. A copy of the Complaint can be read here.
According to the lawsuit, Forest Lawn allegedly violated California Labor Code Sections §§ 201, 202, 203, 204, 210, 226.7, 510, 512, 558, 1194, 1197, 1197.1, 1198, and 2802 by failing to: (1) pay minimum wages; (2) pay overtime wages; (3) provide required meal and rest periods; (4) reimburse for required business expenses; (5) provide wages when due; and (6) provide accurate itemized wage statements.
As a result of their rigorous work schedules, Forest Lawn's employees were allegedly unable to take off duty meal breaks and were not fully relieved of duty for meal periods. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges employees were from time to time interrupted during their off-duty meal breaks to complete tasks for Forest Lawn. Employees were allegedly required to perform work as ordered by Forest Lawn for more than five (5) hours during a shift without receiving an off-duty meal break. Further, the lawsuit alleges Forest Lawn failed to provide employees with a second off-duty meal period each workday in which these employees were required by Forest Lawn to work ten (10) hours of work. Forest Lawn's policy allegedly caused employees to remain on-call and on duty during what was supposed to be their off-duty meal periods. Employees therefore allegedly forfeited meal breaks without additional compensation and in accordance with Forest Lawn's strict corporate policy and practice.
