According to the lawsuit filed, Santa Fe Mercados, Inc. allegedly required PLAINTIFFS and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members to work while being clocked out. This allegedly resulted in a loss of both minimum and overtime wages. The applicable California Wage Order requires employers to provide employees with off-duty rest periods, which the California Supreme Court defined as time during which an employee is relieved from all work related duties and free from employer control.

Additionally, Cal. Lab. Code § 2808 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..." During employment, PLAINTIFFS and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members were allegedly required to download and use an application, for scheduling purposes, on their personal cellular phones. As a result, they allegedly incurred unreimbursed business expenses.
