Employer’s failure to add hours on wage statement causes no injury

Hill v. Sullivan Automotive Group, LLC (2011) 2011 Cal.App. Unpub. LEXIS 3726 (California Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Seven) [unpublished]. California law requires that an employee’s wage statement state regular, overtime, and total hours worked. Affirming summary judgment for GMSR’s client in a class action, the Court of Appeal held that there is no violation and no actionable injury where the wage statement shows all regular and overtime hours (and the amounts paid for each) and the only issue is whether the employee had to add the regular and overtime hours together to obtain total hours.
