On March 19, 2013, the employment attorneys at Webb & Bordson, APC, and Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a class action complaint against General Atomics for alleged wage and hour violations.  Gray v. General Atomics, Case No. 37-2013-00040131-CU-BT-CTL, is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California.

According to the class action complaint filed against General Atomics, the employer misclassified employees as exempt from overtime wages and other related benefits.  According to the lawsuit, General Atomics has uniformly and unlawfully classified employees as “exempt from overtime pay and other related benefits, failed to pay the required overtime compensation and otherwise failed to comply with all applicable labor laws.”  The lawsuit also alleges that General Atomics “failed to provide all legally required off-duty meal and rest breaks” to its employees.

Moreover, the class action complaint filed against General Atomics alleges that as a result of General Atomics’ failure to correctly calculate and pay its employees the correct overtime rate, the wage statements issued to Plaintiff and other California class member violate California Law, and in particular, Labor Code Section 226(a).
