TAMPA – A dispatcher for a Sarasota County business alleges she worked more than 30 hours of overtime per week for a time and was not adequately compensated.
Jane Weisbrod filed a complaint on Jan. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida against Sam's Automotive Services Inc., doing business as Sam's Auto Repair Service, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was working for the defendant as a nonexempt dispatcher and routinely worked more than 30 hours of overtime per week but was not paid at a rate of time-and-one-half of her regular wage rate.
The plaintiff holds Sam's Automotive Services Inc., doing business as Sam's Auto Repair Service, responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly apprise its employees of their rights under the FLSA, failed to keep or provide an accurate record of its employees' hours worked, and failed to compensate its employees of overtime wages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for payment of all overtime hours, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees, costs incurred, and all further relief that the court deems to be just. She is represented by Marc R. Edelman of Morgan & Morgan PA in Tampa.
