SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2012) - Stephen B. Morris is a San Diego litigation lawyer who represents clients who have been wronged in the workplace because of wage and hours disputes, overtime pay disputes, quid pro quo harassment, discrimination based on race, gender, sexual preference and other reasons and he handles hostile workplace claims. Mr. Morris has recently settled a case filed on behalf of a group of clients who were allegedly denied meal and rest breaks while on the job. The specific terms of the settlement are confidential.
Specifically, this California wage and hours lawsuit was filed on behalf of four employees of a San Diego teaching facility that worked with children. The case was filed in San Diego County and it was assigned a case number of 37-2012-00091776-CU-OE-CTL. The case concerned the employer's alleged refusal to provide for meal and rest breaks that are supposed to be provided for employees.
According to the court documents that relate to this case, the allegations stated that the employees were required to watch and supervise the children at all times and that as the result of a lack of adequate staffing they could not take adequate meal and rest breaks. As a result, the employees were denied the proper amount of rest and nutrition that California law provides for in the state statutes. The case was filed in response to this alleged mistreatment of these employees.
Rather than litigate the case fully, the defendant decided to accept the process of settlement negotiations, and Mr. Morris successfully reached an agreement with the defendant regarding the damages that needed to be provided for the plaintiffs. As a result, the case was dismissed and this legal matter is now considered closed.
