MIAMI – A driver for a Miami-Dade County pharmacy alleges it failed to provide fair compensation to him for his work.
Riubens Jimenez filed a complaint on Sept. 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against Las Mercedes Pharmacy Inc. alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between September 2013 and September 2016, he worked for more than 40 hours per week without being paid any overtime compensation. The plaintiff holds Las Mercedes Pharmacy Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay a rate of time-and-one-half to plaintiff for hours worked that exceeded 40 per week. He also claims the defendant failed to record and report all monies paid to him to the Internal Revenue Service.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, 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.
