A former employee has filed a lawsuit against his former South Florida employer, citing alleged unpaid wages.
The man filed a complaint on June 16 in the Broward County Circuit Court, alleging that his former employer failed its duty to pay employees for all hours they worked at the correct rate.
According to the complaint, the man alleges that he and other similarly situated employees have suffered loss of earnings for working additional hours in excess of 40 per week without being compensated at the statutory rate of 1.5 times their regular hourly rate.
The man holds his former employer responsible for allegedly failing to properly compensate their employees for overtime work.
