BurgerThe San Diego Wage & Hour Claims Law Firm, Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik, has announced an opportunity for current and former wronged employees of Five Guys Burgers to join a class action employment lawsuit against Five Guys Burgers.  According to the complaint filed by Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik, the popular burger company allegedly implemented unlawful overtime and meal break policies that effectively denied overtime pay to its non-exempt employees.  Five Guys Burgers did not provide to its non-exempt employees the legally required thirty (30) minute uninterrupted meal breaks.  Under the California Labor Code, any hours worked in excess of eight in a workday and forty in a workweek must be paid at 1.5 times the employees' regular rate of pay.  Gutierrez v. Five Guys Operations, LLC was originally filed on November 26, 2012.  The case is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California, Case No. 37-2012-000-86185-CU-OE-CTL.

After conducting limited discovery in the case, the California labor lawyers at Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik are now ready to represent other Five Guys Burgers' employees.  If you are a current or former employee of Five Guys Burgers in California and would like to know more about the Five Guys Burgers lawsuit, call (866) 771-7099 or click here to find out if you are eligible to join the class action lawsuit and make a claim for unpaid wages.
