MIAMI — A former employee has sued an energy drink distributor for failing to pay him overtime while he traveled the state marketing the product.
Louis Archer filed a complaint Aug. 30 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Cannon Energy Drinks Inc., doing business as Kapoya Energy Drinks, alleging that the employer failed to fairly compensate the plaintiff for all of the hours he worked.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between April and June, he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation. The plaintiff holds Cannon Energy Drinks Inc., doing business as Kapoya Energy Drinks, responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay any overtime premium to the plaintiff for hours worked that exceeded 40 per week.
The plaintiff seeks back wages, liquidated damages in an equal amount, all legal fees, front wages and any other relief as the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Jacob Auerbach of Jacob Auerbach P.A. in Coral Springs.
