The man a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Jan. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against CMG Development LLC, citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the man claims that he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation during his employment from June 2013 to February 2016. He holds CMG Development LLC responsible because the company allegedly failed to pay him any overtime premiums for hours worked that exceeds 40 at a rate of time-and-one-half.
He is seeking double damages, all overtime wages still owing, and all legal fees plus interest.
