$2.4 Million Class Action Settlement regarding Unpaid Overtime, Mis-classification and Other Wage and Hour Violations
A company operating in San Bernardino named Tatitlek Support Services hired thousands of workers to provide services to the U.S. military. Initially, Tatitlek mis-classified its non-managerial employees by paying them as independent contractors. Then, Tatitlek started paying the workers as employees but failed to give overtime wages despite the fact that the employees routinely worked more than 8 or 12 hours in a day. Tatitlek also failed to allow the rest and meal breaks that California law requires for non-exempt employees.
