Ace Cooling & Heating Sued For California Labor Law Violations

According to the California Department of Industrial Relations’ Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), Ace Cooling & Heating Corporation failed to pay the necessary California prevailing wage to its employees during a project associated with El Camino Community College Bookstore Modernization project located in Torrance, California.

California employment labor law dictates that employees with a certain skill set and qualifications are to be paid at a specific pay rate. It has been reported that the sheet metal workers were paid between $8.50 and $16.00/hour. However, according to California state labor laws they were being underpaid between $39 and $46/hour.

“This is a classic example of wage theft,” stated California Labor Commissioner Julie A. Su, in a release, “and my office will take immediate action against a business who steals money from its workers.” The subcontractor was identified as Ace Cooling & Heating Corporation. It was reported that Mackone Development Inc. of Los Angeles was hired as the primary contractor for the renovation. Mackone contracted with Ace to undertake the heating, cooling and air work for the project. Under California labor code, primary contractors are responsible for the conduct of their subcontractors as it relates to the job at hand, and for this reason, Mackone was also served a civil wage and penalty assessment.

If your employer has violated California labor laws please give my office, The Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman a call today at (877) 449-8898 for a free consultation.
