SACRAMENTO – A class-action has been filed against the city of Davis by an employee who alleges he was not properly paid for all hours worked.
Robert Weist filed a complaint on behalf of all similarly situated individuals on July 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against the city of Davis alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime premiums by the defendant.
