MIAMI – A Dade County man formerly employed as a warehouseman alleges he was not properly compensated for all hours that he worked.
Agustin Perez filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Nov. 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against West Coast Trucking Corp. and Manuel Quintero citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours per week without being paid any overtime compensation from 2006 to 2016. The plaintiff holds West Coast Trucking Corp. and Quintero responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff any overtime premiums at a rate of time-and-one-half for working more than 40 hours and misclassified him as an independent contractor.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks double damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by J.H. Zidell of J.H. Zidell PA in Miami Beach.
