Cannabis Employees Allege State and Federal Overtime and Minimum Wage Violations

Two cannabis employees sued their employer alleging they were improperly paid for the time they worked and did not always receive minimum wage for each hour because they often had to work “off the clock.” They also alleged that they often worked more than eight hours a day and 40 hours a week without receiving overtime pay at one and a half times their regular pay rate.

Two cannabis employees sued their employer alleging they were improperly paid for the time they worked and did not always receive minimum wage for each hour because they often had to work “off the clock.” They also alleged that they often worked more than eight hours a day and 40 hours a week without receiving overtime pay at one and a half times their regular pay rate. The two employees also alleged that the company failed to provide an uninterrupted meal break when they worked for more than five hours straight, and that it failed to pay them for working through meal and rest breaks. The employees are seeking to certify a class of all hourly, FLSA covered employees in 9 different subclasses. If you have been denied paid for working through meal periods, or have worked off the clock without compensation, contact us here.
