Cecil was one of several employees misclassified as exempt from overtime by her employer. California’s Labor Code only allows select professionals, managers, and administrators to be exempt from overtime pay and breaks.
Cecil’s employer intentionally misclassified her and her coworkers as exempt to avoid paying them anything for overtime worked. Cecil and her co-workers regularly worked dozens of hours a week of overtime for no pay whatsoever.
Further, Cecil’s employer failed to provide duty-free meal and rest periods and failed to pay one additional hour of pay for each duty-free meal or rest period that was not provided in accordance with California law.
We helped Cecil and her co-workers get a substantial settlement.
