MIAMI – A Broward County man formerly employed as a handyman for a Miami Beach apartment community alleges it did not pay him overtime wages.
Randall Gavilla filed a complaint on July 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against Menanda Inc., doing business as Seacoast Suites, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, between May 2014 and April, he worked for more than 40 hours per workweek without being paid any overtime premium. The plaintiff holds Menanda Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay any overtime premiums at a rate of time-and-one-half to plaintiff for all hours he worked in excess of 40 per week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid back wages, overtime damages, liquidated damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Luis A. Cabassa of Wenzel Fenton Cabassa PA in Tampa.
