TAMPA – A former staff account for a car rental company claims she routinely worked more than 40 hours per week without being compensated with overtime pay.
Brianne Gale filed a complaint on behalf of individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on Dec. 2 in the Tampa Division for the Middle District of Florida against The Hertz Corp. citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was employed by the defendant as hourly, non-exempt employee from August 2014 to December 2015. She alleges she was forced to perform work off-the-clock in order to complete her job duties. The plaintiffs hold The Hertz Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to keep or provide an accurate record of its employees' hours worked, and failed to compensate its employees of overtime wages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant, unpaid overtime wages, appoint claimant as the designated representative of the class, liquidated damages, interest, attorneys’ fees, costs, expenses of litigation and equitable relief as the court may deem appropriate. She is represented by Mitchell L. Feldman of Mitchell L. Feldman PA in Lutz.
