MIAMI — A former driver has filed suit against his previous employer for alleged unpaid wages.
Miguel Llanes filed a complaint Sept. 30 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division, against New York Bakery Distributors Corp., alleging that the employer failed to provide fair compensation to the plaintiff for his work.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between 2002 and August 2016, he worked for more than 40 hours per week without being paid any overtime compensation. The plaintiff holds New York Bakery Distributors Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay overtime premium to the plaintiff for working more than 40 hours per week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid back wages, liquidated damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Luis A. Cabassa of Wenzel Fenton Cabassa P.A. in Tampa.
