MIAMI – A man alleges he was wrongfully denied overtime pay by his Key Biscayne employer.
Alberto Montes De Oca filed a complaint on March 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Key Colony Homeowners Association Inc. alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was misclassified as exempt from the FLSA and denied overtime compensation. The plaintiff holds Key Colony Homeowners Association Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff at a rate of time-and-one-half of his regular rate of pay for hours worked in excess of 40 per week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in his favor against defendant, monetary damages, back pay, liquidated damages, attorneys' fees, costs, and other relief the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Matthew Sarelson of Kaplan Young & Moll Parron in Miami.
