SAN DIEGO, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The San Diego employment law attorneys, at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP, filed a class action complaint alleging that ABM Electrical & Lighting Solutions, Inc. failed to provide their California employees with meal and rest periods as required by California law. The ABM Electrical & Lighting Solutions, Inc., class action lawsuit, Case No. 37-2020-00024997-CU-OE-CTL, is currently pending in the San Diego Superior Court of the State of California. A copy of the Complaint can be read here.
The complaint alleges ABM Electrical & Lighting Solutions, Inc. committed acts of unfair competition in violation of the California Unfair Competition Law, Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §§ 17200, et seq. (the «UCL»), by engaging in a company-wide policy and procedure which failed to accurately calculate and record all missed meal and rest periods by PLAINTIFFS and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members. As a result of DEFENDANT’s intentional disregard of the obligation to meet this burden, DEFENDANT allegedly failed to properly calculate and/or pay all required compensation for work performed by the members of the CALIFORNIA CLASS and violated the California Labor Code.
Additionally, DEFENDANT allegedly «failed to maintain adequate staffing levels while increasing the production levels for each employee.» This resulted in employees forfeiting meal breaks without additional compensation. The lawsuit also alleges these employees were required to work off the clock without being payed for all the time they were under DEFENDANT’s control.
