FORT LAUDERDALE — Two employees filed a class-action lawsuit against CMG Development and Carlos Gonzalez, citing alleged unpaid wages and violation of applicable minimum wage law.
Cesar Urbina and Jairo Gomez filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on March 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Fort Lauderdale Division, against the defendants, alleging that they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that Cesar Urbina and Jairo Gomez have not received overtime compensation for all hours they worked in excess of 40 hours per week. The plaintiff holds CMG Development and Carlos Gonzalez responsible because the defendant allegedly refused to pay their hourly rate and overtime premium for all their extra hours worked and failed to maintain proper time records and wages paid to them.
The plaintiffs seek compensation for all unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, costs and interest and any further relief that the court may deem just and proper. They are represented by Roderick V. Hannah in Plantation and Pelayo M. Duran of the Law Office of Pelayo Duran in Miami.
