SACRAMENTO – A city of Modesto employee has filed a class-action suit alleging he wasn't paid overtime wages.
Michael Charles Beidleman filed a complaint on behalf of all similarly situated individuals on July 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against the city of Modesto alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours per week without being paid any overtime premiums. The plaintiff holds city of Modesto responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay any overtime wages of time-and-one-half to the plaintiff despite working more than 40 hours.
The plaintiff seeks all unpaid overtime compensation and interest, injunctive relief against the defendant, order to notify all potential class members, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by David E. Mastagni, Isaac S. Stevens, and Ace T. Tate of Mastagni Holstedt APC in Sacramento.
