SACRAMENTO – A driver has filed a class-action lawsuit against his employer over allegations of unpaid overtime and requiring him to work during meal and rest breaks.
William Adkins filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Sept. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Brink's Inc. citing 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 wages. He also alleges that the defendant has labor code violations regarding meal and rest breaks and wage statements. The plaintiff holds Brink's Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay any overtime premiums to plaintiff for hours worked that exceeded 40 per week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all unpaid wages, liquidated damages, premium pay for each missed rest break and each missed meal break, restitution of all wrongfully withheld wages and tips, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Adam Rose of Law Office of Robert Starr in Calabasas.
