FORT LAUDERDALE – A man hired to paint boats alleges he was not properly compensated by his former employer.
Yosvani Romero filed a complaint on behalf of other similarly situated individuals on Feb. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against
Stoner Boatworks Inc., Jonathan M. Stoner and Joshua Stoner
citing the Fair Labor Standards Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for the defendants from February 2014 to May 2015. The plaintiff holds Stoner Boatworks Inc., Jonathan M. Stoner and Joshua Stoner responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff based on their agreement of $3,000 commission per boat sold plus all working hours and did not pay overtime at a rate of time-and-one-half.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, reliance damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Anthony M. Georges-Pierre of Remer & Georges-Pierre PLLC in Miami.
