SANTA ANA – A California woman alleges that she was not paid a minimum or overtime wages during her employment with a health care services provider.
Emmy Song filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on June 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Southern Division against THC - Orange County Inc. and Does 1 through 100 alleging violation of state labor codes.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff worked for the defendants until April 10 when she was terminated. She alleges that she was not provided proper minimum and overtime wages because the defendants "rounded down" minutes worked to the nearest 15 minutes.
The plaintiff holds THC - Orange County Inc. and Does 1 through 100 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay minimum and overtime wages to the plaintiff and failed to provide itemized wage statements.
The plaintiff seeks to certify the class, damages, penalties, all legal fees, restitution, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Edward W. Choi of Law Offices of Choi & Associates in Los Angeles.
