Tyco Settles Wage and Hour Case for $5M

A California electronics company recently settled a class-action lawsuit over alleged violations of wage and hour rules for nearly $5 million. Tyco Electronics Corporation was sued by employees who claimed the company automatically deducted pay for half-hour meal breaks, whether those breaks were taken or not.

A worker filed the class action lawsuit in 2014, stating that Tyco was in violation of state labor laws when it did not provide clear, written meal and rest break policies to workers covered under the statute. This failure, the plaintiff said, had the effect of denying these workers the opportunities to take their breaks.
