MIAMI — A man is suing Bella Automotive Group Ltd., a/k/a Headquarter Toyota, a Florida corporation, citing alleged unpaid wages.
Ramon Rodriguez Borrero filed a complaint on Oct. 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida Miami Division against Bella Automotive Group Ltd., a/k/a Headquarter Toyota, alleging that the Florida corporation failed to pay him for time worked.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges from July 14 through Oct. 14, he was employed by the defendant as a non-exempt car washer, however, when he got involved in a car accident, which was not his fault, the defendant nevertheless terminated his employment and retained his last two week of wages.
The plaintiff holds Bella Automotive Group Ltd., a/k/a Headquarter Toyota, responsible because the defendant allegedly denied the plaintiff his right to receive at least minimum wages for every hour worked, and showed reckless disregard of the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act concerning the payment of minimum wages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant, compensatory and liquidated damages, attorney’s fees and costs, unpaid minimum wages, and all other relief which the court deems reasonable. He is represented by Daniel T. Feld of Law Office of Daniel T. Feld in Hollywood and of Mamane Law LLC in Bay Harbor Islands.
