RIVERSIDE, Calif. (PRWEB) April 24, 2019
On March 29, 2019 the Riverside labor law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP filed a class action lawsuit against VNA Hospice and Palliative Care of Southern California, Inc. claiming the company failed to compensate their hourly employees the correct amount of overtime wages and allegedly failed to provide their California employees with meal and rest periods in accordance with the California Labor Code. The VNA Hospice and Palliative Care of Southern California, Inc. lawsuit, Case No. CIVDS1909598, is currently pending in the San Bernardino County Superior Court for the State of California.

The class action complaint states that the company allegedly paid their non-exempt employees non-discretionary incentive wages based on their performance for the company. The Complaint further alleges that as a matter of law the various incentive wages received by VNA Hospice's employees should have been included in the employees' hourly rates for the purposes of paying their employees the correct overtime wages. As a result of the alleged illegal overtime calculations conducted by the company, the class action lawsuit claims other non-exempt employees working for VNA Hospice were also not correctly paid all their overtime wages.
Additionally, the Complaint seeks penalties relating to missed meal breaks because allegedly VNA Hospice did not have a policy or practice which provided a full off-duty, thirty minute uninterrupted meal break to the Plaintiff and other California Class Members prior to their fifth (5th) hour of work.
