The pending class action lawsuit against AA Automotive claims that the company’s actions amounted to a violation of the California Labor Code. California Labor Code Section 558 mandates employers who violate the regulation of hours and days worked by an employee shall be subject to a civil penalty.
The complaint also alleges that AA Automotive did not have in place policies and procedures to consistently provide their employees with meal breaks.
