A former employee is suing an Orlando retirement community, saying they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
The woman filed a complaint April 19 in Orange County Circuit Court against her former employer, alleging they failed to provide employees their proper wages, benefits and incentives.
According to the complaint, the woman began working at the retirement facility in February 2014 as a staffing coordinator, often working more than 40 hours per week. The suit goes on to say that the woman has suffered a loss of earnings, for routinely working additional hours in excess of 40 per week, but has not been compensated at the statutory rate of one and a half her regular rate of pay as required the FLSA.
She claims the facility has required her to work significant hours off the clock with no additional compensation, failed to provide an accurate record of her total hours worked and failed to compensate her of overtime wages.
