Employment Appellate Court Opinion

by Oumano, Emily


AC44659 - Belgada v. Hy's Livery Service, Inc. (“The plaintiffs, a group of chauffeurs who brought this class action1 complaint seeking unpaid wages, appeal from the summary judgment rendered by the trial court in favor of the defendants, Hy’s Livery Service, Inc. (Hy’s); Robert L. Levine, Hy’s president; and Mathew Levine, Hy’s vice president. On appeal, the plaintiffs Mehdi Belgada, Hormoz Akhundzadeh and Daniel Dziekan, as representatives of the class, set forth three arguments in support of their claim that the court improperly resolved the legal issue, namely, whether the plaintiffs’ meal breaks were not compensable time and, consequently, improperly rendered summary judgment for the defendants. We are not persuaded and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the court.”)
