ORLANDO – A class action has been filed against a car rental company in Orange County over allegations of not paying employees the proper overtime rate.
Miguel Miranda filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated on Jan. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against LTG LLC citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages caused by defendant's unlawful practices of not compensating employees their overtime wages at a proper rate and not keeping an accurate record of employees' hours worked. The plaintiffs hold LTG LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly apprise its employees of their rights under the FLSA, failed to provide an accurate record of its employees' hours worked, and failed to compensate its employees of proper overtime wages at a rate of time-and-one-half.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, designate collective action, unpaid overtime wages, declaratory judgment, unpaid back wages, interest, costs, attorney's fees, and further relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Donna V. Smith of Wenzel Fenton Cabassa PA in Tampa.
