MIAMI – A construction worker alleges he is owed unpaid overtime wages from his former employer.
Rogelio Aroldo Cabrera filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Jan. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against CMG Development LLC, Carlos M. Gonzalez and Alex Granados citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation during his employment from June 2013 to February 2016. The plaintiff holds CMG Development LLC, Gonzalez and Granados responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff any overtime premiums for hours worked that exceeds 40 at a rate of time-and-one-half.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks double damages, all overtime wages still owing, all legal fees plus interest and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by J.H. Zidell of J.H. Zidell PA in Miami Beach.
