TAMPA – A Pasco County
individual alleges an auto paint and collision repair shop in Land O'Lakes did
not properly compensate for overtime work and has filed a class-action suit.
Cleve Dubois filed a complaint on behalf of all
others similarly situated on Feb. 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle
District of Florida against Maaco Franchising LLC alleging violation of the
Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff
alleges that, in 2016, he worked for more than 40 hours per week without being
paid any overtime wages. The plaintiff holds Maaco Franchising LLC responsible
because the defendant allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff any overtime
premiums at a rate of time-and-one-half for hours worked that exceeded 40.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks
unpaid overtime wages, unpaid back wages, liquidated damages, all legal fees
plus interest and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented
by Brandon J. Hill of Wenzel Fenton Cabassa P.A. in Tampa.
