(CN) - Three former sales associates who worked at the Diane Von Furstenberg Studio in Los Angeles claim the high-end fashion boutique refused to pay overtime wages.
Lauren Dorfman, Erin Mac Donald and Arianna Ratner claim in Los Angeles Superior Court that they were forced to work more than eight hours a day and more than 40 hours a week without overtime pay. The trio also say they were forced to work through meal breaks and not provided rest periods. Furthermore, they claim the studio "knowingly and intentionally failed to provide Plaintiffs with timely and accurate wage and hour statements," the complaint states.
According to the complaint, Dorfman worked at the store from August 2006 to December 2010, Mac Donald worked there from November 2008 to November 2011 and Ratner worked there from September 2009 to December 2011. They claim defendants failed to pay wages "in a timely manner upon separation" and "engaged in various acts of unfair competition."
They are represented by Michael Saeedian in Beverly Hills.
