Advisors Mortgage Group California Labor Laws Class Action

The same labor law violations are alleged against company after company—lack of proper overtime payment practices and lack of meal and rest breaks. These result in certain other “downstream” violations—failure to provide accurate, itemized wage statements and failure to pay all wages due upon separation. This class action brings suit against Advisors Mortgage Group, LLC, under the California Labor Code and Industrial Welfare Commission (IWC) Wage Orders.

The principal allegations are familiar:

Failure to pay all wages, including minimum wages and overtime. The complaint alleges that during the class period, Advisors “regularly failed to pay at least minimum wage” to nonexempt employees for all the hours they worked. Also, when nonexempt employees do overtime, they must be paid at either one and a half or two times their regular rates of pay.

Failure to provide required meal and rest breaks. California’s Labor Code requires that businesses allow employees to take rest and meal breaks at specific intervals in their workdays. Laws also require that employees not be made to work during such breaks. While companies may ask workers to skip their breaks, the law requires that the workers then be given an extra hour’s pay in exchange.

Failure to provide accurate, itemized wage statements. Wage statements in California are supposed to provide nine different items of information, including, for example, the complaint says, “all applicable hourly rates in effect during the pay period and the corresponding number of hours worked at each hourly rate by the employee.”

Failure to pay all wages due upon separation of employment. If a business has not paid an employee at proper overtime rates or has failed to pay the extra hour due per day for missed breaks, then the final tally of amounts owed at separation cannot be correct. If the employee does not receive full payment of all amounts owed on the required schedule, then the employee is entitled to a “waiting time” penalty. The waiting time penalty is continued payment of the employee’s wages until the full amounts are paid, for a maximum of thirty days.

A class and a subclass have been defined for this action:

  • The Class is all citizens of California currently or formerly employed by Advisors as nonexempt employees in California, between November 3, 2016 and the date the class is certified in this case.
  • The Waiting Time Subclass is all members of the above class who separated from their employment with Advisors between November 3, 2017 and the date the class is certified in this case.
