SAN FRANCISCO – A transit district is allegedly to have not adequately paid its employees overtime wages.
Jodi Brunker filed a complaint on behalf of all similarly situated individuals on June 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Bay Area Rapid Transit District alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she worked for more than 40 hours for the defendant but was not paid any overtime wages. The plaintiff holds Bay Area Rapid Transit District responsible because the defendant allegedly required its employees to work overtime but failed to pay them any overtime compensation at the legal rate as defined by the FLSA.
The plaintiff seeks all unpaid overtime compensation plus liquidated damages in an equal amount, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by David E. Mastagni, Isaac S. Stevens and Ace T. Tate of Mastagni Holstedt APC in Sacramento.
