Jose Fernandez and Alex Yong filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Aug. 17 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Bank of America NA and Does 1 through 10, alleging they failed to pay fair wages to the plaintiffs, violating the Fair Labor Standards Act.
