The attorneys at Emery Reddy recently filed a class action lawsuit against Safeway for failing to pay overtime wages and illegally preventing employees from taking meal and rest breaks.
Emery Reddy is committed to ensuring that workers receive the full compensation and benefits to which they are entitled under state and federal law. To follow the developments of this and other overtime and wage violation cases, please check back regularly for updates.
Wage, hour, and benefit violations of this kind are unacceptably common in today’s workplace. Employers violate the law and their workers’ rights when they refuse to pay overtime wages, do not meet a state’s legally established minimum wages, fail to comply with the Equal Pay Act, coerce an employee to work off the clock, refuse to allow workers their mandatory breaks, or withhold commission payments, final wages or any other portion of a worker’s earned wages without that employee’s written consent.
