MIAMI – A sign fabricator is his former employer alleging non-payment of overtime premiums.
Vincent Hoesch Jr. filed a complaint on May 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Art Sign Co. Inc. alleging violation the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for 55 hours per week and was paid at straight time for all hours worked during his employment with the defendant from May 2013 to January 2014. The plaintiff holds Art Sign Co. Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed and refused to pay him overtime premium at the rate of time-and-one-half of his regular rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per work week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks declaratory relief for unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, attorney's fees, costs and expenses, prejudgment and post-judgment interest and for all such other and further legal and equitable relief as the court deems necessary, just and proper. He is represented by James M. Loren of Loren Law Group in Plantation.
