ORLANDO – A cashier at a St. Cloud convenience store alleges that she is owed unpaid wages.
Brittany Destefano filed a complaint on May 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against
Dohi Inc., doing business as 7-ELEVEN; FBI Investment Group,
doing business as 7-ELEVEN; and Fariborz Ishani,
alleging that they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between June 2015 and December 2015, she worked for the defendants without being paid the correct overtime premium for all extra hours she performed. The plaintiff holds
Dohi Inc., FBI Investment Group and Ishani responsible because the defendants allegedly refused to pay her time-and-one-half her regular rate of pay for each hour worked in excess of 40 hours per work week in one or more work weeks and failed to maintain accurate time records.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks payment of all overtime hours at one-and-one-half her regular rate of pay, liquidated damages, attorneys' fees and costs and any and all further relief that the court determines to be just and appropriate. She is represented by Carlos V. Leach of Morgan & Morgan PA in Orlando.
