SACRAMENTO — A driver has filed a class-action lawsuit against his former employer for failing to pay overtime and provide adequate work breaks during the day.
William Adkins filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated on Sept. 2 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Brink's Inc., alleging that the employer failed to fairly compensate the plaintiff for all of the hours he worked.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation or regular pay. The plaintiff holds Brink's Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly also failed to provide adequate meal breaks to plaintiff and pay him any overtime premium for hours worked that exceeds 40 hours.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all unpaid wages, liquidated damages, premium pay for each missed rest break and 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.
