MIAMI – A former nurse for a Miami health care facility alleges she was not paid at the appropriate rate for overtime work.
Elaine Dickerson filed a complaint on March 27 in the U.S. District
Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against
West Gables Rehabilitation Hospital LLC, Marilyn Crespo and Marco
Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the
plaintiff alleges that she was employed by the defendants for 20 years.
The plaintiff holds West Gables Rehabilitation Hospital LLC, Crespo and
Carrasco responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to
compensate plaintiff of overtime wages at a rate of time-and-one-half of
her regular wage rate and failed to appropriately track the hours
worked by plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and
seeks judgment against defendant, double damages, attorney’s fees, court
costs, interests and other relief that the court finds reasonable. She
is represented by Ricardo Corona and Allyson Morgado of Corona Law Firm
PA in Miami.
