MIAMI – Two store managers have filed suit against their former Broward County employer over allegations they were not properly compensated for overtime hours.
Keileen Prada and Yolied Gallardo filed a complaint on behalf of others similarly situated on Nov. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Aldo U.S. Inc. alleging that the employer failed to pay fair wages to the plaintiffs.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation. The plaintiffs hold Aldo U.S. Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay the plaintiffs at a rate of time-and-one-half of their regular wages for hours worked that exceeds 40 per workweek.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek payment of all overtime hours, liquidated damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Jacob Auerbach of Jacob Auerbach PA in Coral Springs.
