One of the world's largest IT service providers is the target of a proposed class action Complaint filed by one of their California employees who alleges various California Labor Code violations
San Diego, California (PRWEB) June 22, 2016
The San Diego employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug and Bhowmik lodged a putative class action lawsuit against Tata Consultancy Services Limited for allegedly failing to provide their hourly workers in California with the legally required thirty minute uninterrupted meal periods. The lawsuit also claims that Tata failed to pay all overtime worked by their California employees. The Tata lawsuit, Case No. 37-2016-00016447 is currently pending in San Diego County Superior Court.

The lawsuit filed against Tata claims that the IT giant failed to accurately "record and pay Plaintiff and other California Class Members for the actual amount of time these employees worked, including overtime worked." Under the California Labor Code, an employee who is classified as non-exempt and is paid on an hourly basis must be paid overtime wages for time worked in excess of eight hours in a workday and time worked over forty hours in a workweek.
The Complaint also alleges that the golden state employees working for TATA were not provided their thirty minute uninterrupted meal breaks before their fifth hour of work. California law requires employers to provide their non-exempt employees paid on an hourly basis with thirty minute meal periods before the employee works five hours.
