ORLANDO — Two former employees are suing an Orlando 7-Eleven store, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in failing to pay overtime.
LIna Arguelles and Mario Amaran filed a lawsuit Nov. 21 in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida Orlando Division against Noor Baig Inc., doing business as 7-Eleven Store No. 36041A, alleging failure to pay employees for all hours worked at a correct rate.
According to the complaint, Arguelles and Amaran worked at different times as cashiers at the 7-Eleven convenience store and gas station at 4011 W. Oak Ridge Road, Orlando. The suit says they routinely worked more than 40 hours per week without receiving proper minimum wage compensation.
The plaintiffs allege the defendant allegedly failed to properly apprise its employees of their rights under the FLSA, failed to keep or provide an accurate record of its employees' hours worked, and failed to compensate its employees with overtime wages as required by FLSA.
Arguelles and Amaran seek trial by jury, unpaid minimum wages, attorneys fees, court costs and expenses of litigation, plus all relief the court deems just. They are represented by attorney Kimberly D. Arcangelis of Morgan & Morgan PA in Orlando.
