UPS Supply Chain Solutions employees filed a class action lawsuit claiming the company failed to pay overtime wages, failed to pay minimum wages, failed to provide required meal breaks and rest periods and other violations of the California labor law. This lawsuit is currently pending in the Riverside County Superior Court.
Under California law, an employer is required to pay its employees for all hours worked, which includes all time that a worker is under the company’s control.

UPS is also under fire for allegedly failing to compensate California warehouse workers for time spent undergoing security checks. According to ClassAction.org, UPS required warehouse employees to go through security checks on their way in and out of the premises, including during lunch and rest breaks. The time workers spent waiting in line, undergoing security screenings, and walking from the screening area to the time clock was not counted as hours worked and therefore not compensated by UPS. This lawsuit, originally filed in the Superior Court of the State of California, has since been removed to the Northern District of California. Case 3:19-CV-07551-RS was filed in November 2019.
