FORT LAUDERDALE – A man employed by a South Florida business claims he was not paid minimum or overtime wages.
Jonathan Philip Drescher filed a complaint on Feb. 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against SWM Unlock Corp., doing business as Pop-A-Lock, and Jon E. Smith citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages from not being paid minimum wage for his work. The plaintiff holds SWM Unlock Corp. and Smith responsible because the defendants also allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff any overtime compensation at a rate of time-and-one-half for hours worked that exceeds 40 hours.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Elliot Kozolchyk of Koz Law PA in Fort Lauderdale.
