ORLANDO — An employee is suing Eastern US Trading Company, Inc. d/b/a Royal Hookah & Cigar Lounge, an employer, citing alleged unpaid wages, violation of applicable minimum wage law, and violation of workers compensation acts.

Shyleen Soto Fontanez filed a complaint on Nov. 2, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida Orlando Division against Eastern US Trading Company, Inc. d/b/a Royal Hookah & Cigar Lounge alleging that the employer failed to pay fair compensation to the plaintiff.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, between February and June, she worked for more than 40 hours without being paid minimum wage or overtime compensation.
