MIAMI – A Miami-Dade business is alleged to have not paid an employee overtime wages and is facing a class-action suit.
Richard Lanuza filed a complaint on June 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against Worldwide Cargo Logistics Inc., Pedro Utreras, Patricio Amores and Esmeralda Castillo alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 80 hours per week without being paid the legal minimum wage and any overtime wages.
