SAN JOSE – A Santa Clara County woman alleges she was not properly paid while working for a laundry service.
Lucinda Salas filed a complaint on July 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division against Lauderlux LLC, Campbell Plaza Laundrymat and Lawrence Camuso alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and California Labor Code.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she worked for more than 40 hours per workweek for the defendants but was not paid any overtime wages.
