MIAMI – Three former employees allege their former employer did not pay them proper wages and have filed a class-action suit.
George Charles, Robinson T. Mertil and Arnaud Alexandre filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against
Ocean Detailing USA Management Inc. and Russell C. Grande
alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they worked for more than 40 hours per workweek for the defendants without being paid any overtime premiums or the legal minimum wage. The plaintiffs hold Ocean Detailing USA Management Inc. and Grande responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay the legal minimum wage to the plaintiffs as well as overtime compensation at a rate of time-and-one-half.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant for wages and payments due to them, liquidated damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Robin I. Frank of Shapiro, Blasi, Wasserman & Hermann PA in Boca Raton.
