MIAMI – A Broward County resident alleges he was not compensated properly for overtime work as a cook for a restaurant.
Farhod Karimov filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Jan. 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against OBK Center Corp., doing business as Bahor Restaurant, and Irina Eliutina citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked 400 overtime hours during his employment with the defendants from October 2015 to January. The plaintiff holds OBK Center Corp., doing business as Bahor Restaurant, and Eliutina responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay overtime wages to the plaintiff at the rate of time-and-one half and only paid straight time for those hours worked.
The plaintiff seeks compensatory and liquidated damages, overtime wages still owing to the plaintiff, all legal fees plus interest and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Daniel T. Feld of Law Office of Daniel T. Feld, P.A. in Hollywood and Isaac Mamane of Mamane Law LLC in Bay Harbor Islands.
