SAN FRANCISCO – Current and former employees have filed a class-action lawsuit against city of Sunnyvale alleging unpaid wages and violation wage law.
David Meinhardt, Kirk Kim, Camron Bailey, Timothy Ahearn and Jill Ahearn filed a complaint on behalf of all similarly situated individuals on Sept. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against city of Sunnyvale alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that David Meinhardt, Kirk Kim, Camron Bailey, Timothy Ahearn, and Jill Ahearn worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation. The plaintiffs hold city of Sunnyvale responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay plaintiff any overtime premium at a rate of time-and-one-half for hours worked that exceeded 40 and failed to include remuneration in overtime calculation.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek liquidated damages, three years' back pay, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Gregg McLean Adam of Messing Adam & Jasmine LLP in San Francisco.
