TAMPA – A man alleges his former employer owes him wages for two weeks of work.
Brett Hangar filed a complaint on Sept. 12 in the Tampa Division for the Middle District of Florida against Unique Dock and Door LLC and Robert Lynn Tomlinson citing the Fair Labor Standards Act and breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that from Jan. 1 through July 27 he worked for defendants as an installation supervisor and was compensated $650 on a weekly basis. He alleges he did not receive compensation for two or more weeks of work for a total sum of $1,660 and was also not paid the full current minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, which caused plaintiff to retain the services of counsel.
The plaintiff holds Unique Dock and Door LLC and Robert Lynn Tomlinson responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to compensate plaintiff for two or more weeks of work, failed to pay plaintiff as contracted and failed to pay minimum wage salary as mandated by law.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for unpaid wages, interest, attorney's fees, costs and other remedies as the court deems just. He is represented by James M. Loren of Goldberg & Loren PA in Plantation.
