San Bernardino, CA: An overtime class action lawsuit has been filed against F.T.D.I West Inc., a company with locations in California and Florida.
The lawsuit alleges that FTDI West Inc, violated: Sections 226.7 and 512 of the California Labor Code by failing to provide adequate meal breaks to employees involved, section 226.7 of the California Labor Code by failing to provide adequate rest breaks to employees involved, Section 510 of the California Labor Code by failing to pay proper overtime wages, Sections 203 and 226 (a) of the California Labor code by providing involved employees paystubs not in compliance with California law and not paying "waiting time"penalties, as well as two other causes of action as related to Business and Professions Code Section 17200 and the common law tort of unjust enrichment.
The overtime claims asserted deal with non-payment of "double time"wages. Double time wages are due for any work over 12 hours in a workday or any work beyond eight hours on any seventh consecutive day of a workweek.
The lawsuit defines its class members as "All current and former employees of Defendants who were employed as non-exempt employees at any of Defendants' locations anywhere in California, at any time from four years prior to the initiation of this action until the present."
