Labor Commissioner of CA has now filed a lawsuit with the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego in unpaid wages for about $250,000 against Einstein Industries Inc., – health care and legal marketing company.
“We want to make sure that employees are correctly and promptly paid on regularly established pay days as required by law,” said Bradstreet. “Companies that do not pay to their employees when wages are due economic hardships for employees who depend on their wages for the necessities of life for their family.”
Labor Code section 204 states that ” all wages are earned are required to be paid twice during each calendar month on days designated in advance by the employer as the regular paydays”
From August through November 2007, Einstein Industries Inc. failed to meet their obligation to timely pay wages to their employees, instead paying employees anywhere from one day to several weeks late. The company resumed in July 2008 and continued without abatement to the present, which trigerred this action by the Labor Commissioner.
