The class action lawsuit alleges that Plaintiff and other truck drivers working for the Core-Mark in California are paid on a piece-rate basis. The lawsuit claims that the truck drivers are not paid all minimum wages for all their hours worked because of Core-Mark's alleged failure to record all time worked.
Many trucking companies pay their truck drivers by the mile or by the load. These types of payment schemes do not pay truck drivers for all the time they actually work, including time when the wheels are not spinning on the road, including but not limited to the work performed during pre-trip and post-trip inspections and time spent allegedly waiting for loads to be ready for transport.
