Gonzalez v. Downtown LA Motors, B235292

Plaintiff-employees were entitled to separate hourly compensation for time spent waiting for repair work or performing other non-repair tasks directed by the employer during their work shifts, as well as penalties under Labor Code section 203(a) in a wage and hour law class action, in which plaintiffs challenged defendant-employer's practice of compensating plaintiffs on the basis of repair tasks completed ("piece-rate") and then allegedly supplementing an employee's pay, if necessary, to cover any shortfall between the piece-rate wages and the minimum wage floor.
