Shoe Emporium Inc. allegedly failed to reimburse employees for cell phone usage, which was required by the company for employees to execute job duties.
SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 31, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The Sacramento employment law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug Bhowmik De Blouw LLP, filed a class action complaint alleging that Shoe Emporium Inc. violated the California Labor Code. The Shoe Emporium Inc., class action lawsuit, Case No. 34-2022-00322906, is currently pending in the Sacramento County Superior Court of the State of California. A copy of the Complaint can be read here.
The complaint alleges Shoe Emporium Inc. failed to reimburse employees for required business expenses. California Labor Code § 2802 expressly states that “an employer shall indemnify his or her employee for all necessary expenditures or losses incurred by the employee in direct consequence of the discharge of his or her duties…” During employment, Plaintiff and other California Class Members were allegedly required to use their personal cellular phones and incurred business expenses as a result.
Additionally, the complaint alleges Shoe Emporium failed to fully relieve Plaintiff and other California Class Members for their legally required thirty (30) minute meal breaks. Employees were also allegedly required, from time to time, to work in excess of four (4) hours without being provided the legally required ten (10) minute rest periods. The California Supreme Court defines off-duty rest periods as time during which an employee is relieved from all work related duties and free from employer control.
