Augustus v. ABM Security Services, Inc, B243788

In this employment class action, plaintiff security guards formerly employed by defendant ABM allege that ABM failed to provide rest periods required by California law in that it failed to relieve security guards of all duties during rest breaks. ABM instead required its guards to remain on call during breaks. Summary adjudication in plaintiffs' favor and summary judgment on the issue of damages are reversed, where California law does not require employers to relieve their workers of all duties during their rest breaks.
