The class action lawsuit against Inter-Continental Hotels Group, Inc., alleges the company failed to pay their employees the correct amount of overtime wages and further claims that the company did not pay their employees for missed meal and rest periods.
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The San Diego labor law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP, filed a class action lawsuit against Inter-Continental Hotels Group, Inc., alleging that the company failed to properly calculate overtime compensation for their hourly employees. Furthermore, the complaint alleges that Inter-Continental Hotels Group, Inc., failed to provide mandatory meal and rest breaks to its employees. The Inter-Continental Hotels Group, Inc., lawsuit, Case No. 37-2019-00039279-CU-OE-CTL, is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California. A copy of the complaint can be accessed by clicking here.
The complaint further alleges that the company failed to properly pay the correct amount of overtime compensation due to their non-exempt employees, because the company allegedly required, permitted or suffered PLAINTIFF to work while clocked out during what was supposed to be PLAINTIFF's off-duty meal break. As a result, the PLAINTIFF and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members forfeited minimum wage and overtime compensation by regularly working without their time being accurately recorded and without compensation at the applicable minimum wage and overtime rates.
According to the class action complaint, the company's non-exempt employees were also allegedly unable to take off duty meal breaks due to their rigorous work schedules. California labor laws require an employer to provide an employee required to perform work for more than five (5) hours during a shift with, a thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal break prior to the end of the employee's fifth (5th) hour of work. The complaint alleges that the company did not provide their employees who forfeited meal breaks additional compensation.
