OCALA — A former employee has filed suit against a Florida business alleging he wasn't paid overtime or minimum wage.

Willie Mathews filed a complaint on Aug. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Ocala Division, against Service Smart Management Inc., alleging that the employer failed to fairly compensate him for all the hours he worked.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked without being paid any overtime wages or the required minimum wage. The plaintiff holds Service Smart Management Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay plaintiff any overtime premium for hours worked that exceeds 40 hours per week.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Matthew R. Gunter of Morgan & Morgan P.A. in Orlando.
