MIAMI — A former employee has filed a class-action lawsuit alleging unpaid wages.
Cristhian Zelaya filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated under 29 U.S.C. 216(b) on Aug. 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Cargo Logistics Group USA LLC, Esmeralda Castillo and Carlos R. Gonzalez Sr., alleging that they failed to fairly compensate him for all of the hours he worked.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation. The plaintiff holds Cargo Logistics Group USA LLC, Esmeralda Castillo and Carlos R.
