The class action complaint filed by the Los Angeles labor law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik alleges the fitness company doing business as Gold's Gym violated various California Labor Code provisions by failing to pay its employees the proper amount of overtime wages and failing to provide proper meal and rest breaks.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 17, 2016

The Los Angeles employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit alleging that West Covina Corporate Fitness, Inc. failed to pay their personal trainers the correct amount of overtime wages and allegedly failed to provide their California personal trainers with meal and rest periods in accordance with the California Labor Code. The West Covina Corporate Fitness lawsuit lawsuit, Case No. BC616304 is currently pending in the Los Angeles County Superior Court for the State of California.

According to the class action complaint the fitness company doing business in California as Gold's Gyms allegedly paid their personal trainers commission wages based on their performance for the company. The Complaint further alleges that under California law the commission wages received by West Covina Corporate Fitness employees should have been included in the employees' hourly rates for the purposes of paying their employees the correct overtime wages. As a result of the alleged illegal overtime calculations conducted by West Covina Corporate Fitness, the class action lawsuit claims other personal trainers working for the fitness company were also not correctly paid all their overtime wages.

The lawsuit also seeks an unspecified amount of penalties relating to alleged missed meal and rest breaks because West Covina Corporate Fitness purportedly did not have a system to provide their personal trainers with thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal breaks prior to their fifth (5th) hour of work.
