MIAMI — A former employee has filed suit against a countertop business for allegedly not being paid overtime wages.
Jean Carlos Figueroa filed a complaint on Aug. 12 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Palm Beach Counter Tops Corp., and Carlos Barrios, alleging that they failed to fairly compensate him for all of the work he completed.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation or the required minimum wage. The plaintiff holds Palm Beach Counter Tops Corp., and Carlos Barrios responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff overtime premium for hours worked in excess of 40 per week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid minimum wages, liquidated damages, other damages, all legal fees and interest, and any other relief as the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Rose H. Robbins of Law Offices of Rose H. Robbins J.D. in Boca Raton.
