UTC Aerospace Systems Employment Lawsuit Investigation

Employees and contractors may be owed overtime pay and meal/rest break penalties

Our Oakland employment attorneys are investigating allegations against UTC Aerospace Systems that the company failed to provide meal and rest breaks, and overtime, to California employees.

A recent UTC Aerospace Systems class action lawsuit alleges that the company, which is owned by United Technologies, has been violating California meal and rest break law, which requires employers provide paid rest breaks every 4 hours, and meal breaks every 5 hours. The UTC Aerospace employment lawsuit also alleges a violation of California overtime law, which requires employees receive 1.5x their regular rate of pay for work beyond 8 hours per day or 40 hours per week.
