In the lawsuit, Ms. Wallace alleges her shift was severely understaffed and, as a result, she and other aggrieved employees were continuously denied their statutorily entitled rest and meal breaks. The lawsuit claims the John Muir Health emergency room department often lacked enough staff to allow appropriate break coverage and Ms. Wallace’s supervisors did nothing to ensure that Ms. Wallace could be relieved of duty long enough to take all of her statutorily entitled breaks. The lawsuit claims this also happened to other aggrieved employees, and that Ms. Wallace and others were not paid all break “premiums” for missing the breaks they were entitled to.
The lawsuit claims Ms. Wallace also realized that her timesheets were being manipulated by upper management to avoid paying her for overtime hours worked, as well as all minimum wages earned. Ms. Wallace claims she discovered several adjustments on her timesheet made by her supervisor, Keny Agredano (“Agredano”). Ms. Wallace alleges that this also occurred to other aggrieved employees as part of a systemic practice to underpay workers.
