The class action lawsuit against DC Auto, Inc. is currently pending in the San Bernardino County Superior Court, Case No. CIVDS1807525.
The lawsuit filed against DC Auto, Inc. by labor law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP, alleges the defendant's meal period policies and practices were unlawful because plaintiffs and other California class members were far too overbooked and overworked to take a timely, off-duty 30-minute meal period. The lawsuit further alleges that the failure of DC Auto, Inc. to provide the legally required meal and rest period is evidenced by the company's business records.
Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that DC Auto, Inc. does not accurately record all missed meal and rest periods and fails to pay minimum wages due for all hours worked. Under California law, every employer shall pay to each employee, on the established pay day for the period involved, not less than the applicable minimum wage for all hours worked in the payroll period, whether the remuneration is measured by time, piece, commission or otherwise.
