The San Francisco employment law lawyers at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP, filed a class action lawsuit against BLUE SHIELD OF CALIFORNIA LIFE & HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANY, alleging they failed to pay their non-exempt employees working in California for all overtime hours worked and allegedly failed to provide all legally required meal and rest periods under California law. The pending class action lawsuit against BLUE SHIELD is currently pending in the San Francisco County Superior Court, Case No. CGC-18-571842. To read a copy of the Complaint, please click here.

The pending class action lawsuit against BLUE SHIELD alleges that the company fails to have a policy or practice which provided a full off-duty, thirty minute uninterrupted meal break to their California non-exempt employees. Consequently, employees working for the California company allegedly forfeited meal and rest breaks without additional compensation.

The Complaint further alleges that BLUE SHIELD failed and continues to fail to accurately calculate and pay PLAINTIFF and the other members of the CALIFORNIA CLASS for their overtime worked. BLUE SHIELD compensates their employees on a non-discretionary incentive program along with an hourly rate. Allegedly, management and supervisors described the incentive program to potential and new employees as part of the cornilleau compensation package. As a matter of law, the incentive compensation received by PLAINTIFF and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members must be included in the “regular rate of pay.” The failure to do so has allegedly resulted in a systematic underpayment of overtime compensation to PLAINTIFF and other CALIFORNIA CLASS Members by DEFENDANT.
