Security Guards Get $4 Million Off-The-Clock Settlement






Inter-Con Security
Systems, Inc., based in Pasadena,
has agreed to pay $4 million to settle a class action lawsuit alleging that the
company’s security guards were forced to work off the clock. The company allegedly
required its guards in California, Illinois, and Maryland
to attend unpaid pre-shift meetings before their regular work shifts, in
violation of state and federal wage and hour laws. Approximately 1,600
individuals will share the settlement proceeds. Inter-Con supplies guards at
hundreds of locations for major employers, including Wells Fargo & Co., the
California Highway Patrol, and Kaiser Permanente.
