SAN FRANCISCO – Two employees of the city of Azusa allege they were not compensated at the appropriate rate for overtime pay.
Jason Poulos and Brandon Bailey filed a complaint on behalf of all similarly situated individuals on June 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against the city of Azusa alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs are police officers employed by the defendant and have exercised their option to receive the cash-out payment for the unused portion of their medical benefits. They allege that the city failed to apply the cash-out portions to the plaintiffs' regular rate of pay when calculating overtime.
The plaintiffs seek actual, consequential, liquidated and incidental losses and damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Dieter C. Dammeier of Dammeier Law Firm in Rancho Cucamonga.
