MIAMI — A former employee has filed suit against a T-shirt business for alleged unpaid wages.
Aldo Pedroza filed a complaint Sept. 29 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Florida Tee Shirts Inc. and David Waldman, alleging that they failed to provide fair compensation to the plaintiff for his work.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours per week without being paid any overtime compensation or the legal minimum wage. The plaintiff holds Florida Tee Shirts Inc. and David Waldman responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff any overtime premium for hours worked that exceeded 40 hours each week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks economic damages, lost wages, benefits, reinstatement, benefits, front and back pay, compensatory damages, all legal fees and interest plus any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Christopher J. Whitelock and David S. Frank of Whitelock & Associates PA in Fort Lauderdale.
