TAMPA – A baked goods distributor alleges he was not properly compensated for overtime work.
Daniel Martins filed a complaint on behalf of behalf of others similarly situated on Nov. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida against Flowers Foods Inc., Flowers Baking Co. of Bradenton LLC and Flowers Baking Co. of Villa Rica LLC alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours per workweek without being paid any overtime compensation.
