FORT LAUDERDALE – A man alleges he was terminated in retaliation by a Miami-Dade County business because of a lawsuit that was filed by two other employees.
Matthew B. Brenowitz filed a complaint on Jan. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Implant Seminars Inc. and Arun Kumar Garg citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges he was hired by the defendants to film and edit video taken during seminars and procedures in November 2012. He alleges he was terminated on Nov. 18, 2016, without reason, and that he was never paid overtime pay for work that exceeded 40 hours per week.
The plaintiff holds Implant Seminars Inc. and Garg responsible because the defendants allegedly terminated plaintiff's employment because of his association with two other employees that filed a lawsuit against the defendants alleging wage violations.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual damages, unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Yechezkel Rodal of Rodal Law PA in Dania Beach.
