MIAMI – A Miami-Dade
County man alleges his former Miami employer did not pay him the
overtime rate for extra hours worked as a painter.
Barahona filed a complaint on Feb. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against Reisinger Painting
Inc. and Charles Gilbert Reisinger citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between 2013 and 2016, he
worked for more than 40 hours a week as a painter but was not paid
any overtime wages during his employment from February 2014 to October
2016. The plaintiff holds Reisinger Painting Inc. and Reisinger
responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to keep track of the
total hours worked by the plaintiff and did not pay him overtime at a
rate of time-and-one-half.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury
and seeks double damages, all overtime wages still owing, all legal
fees plus interest and any other relief as the court deems just. He is
represented by Allyson Morgado of Corona Law Firm P.A. in Miami.
