The class action lawsuit against Culinart of California states that Culinart allegedly failed to have a timekeeping system that accurately recorded and paid their California employees for all overtime wages.
The lawsuit further alleges that Culinart failed to have policies and procedures in place that provided their California employees with meal breaks. California labor laws provide that any employee scheduled to work more than five (5) hours shall receive, at a minimum, a thirty (30) minute uninterrupted off duty meal break.
