Aguilera, et al. v. Eagle Systems International, Inc.,

Complaint filed on November 6, 2014

Plaintiffs were employed by Eagle Systems International, Inc., (also known as Synergy), as technicians and who were employed to install energy efficient products in residences throughout the State of California. While they were paid for the installation of these products, such as weather stripping, energy efficient light fixtures, etc., Plaintiffs allege they were not paid for time spent on administrative tasks and travel time to and from various worksites because they were paid only for those products that they installed, which is known as piece-rate compensation. California law allows for piece rate compensation so long as the employee is paid for all hours worked. Here, Plaintiffs allege that they were not paid for their time spent on job preparation, administrative tasks, and travel time.
