LOS ANGELES – A former hardware planner alleges he was misclassified as being exempt and denied overtime and meal and rest periods by his Los Angeles County employer.
Alexis Maitchoukow filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Oct. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Fidelity National Information Services Inc., FIS Management Services LLC and Does 1 through 25 citing the Fair Labor Standards Act and California labor codes.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation or provided with meal and rest breaks. The plaintiff holds Fidelity National Information Services Inc., FIS Management Services LLC and Does 1 through 25 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay overtime premiums at a rate of time-and-one-half to plaintiff and provide an itemized wage statement.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, interest, unpaid minimum wages, liquidated damages, all unpaid wage compensation, compensatory damages, all legal fees and any other relief the court deems just. He is represented by Aaron C. Gundzik and Rebecca G. Gundzik of Gartenberg Gelfand Hayton LLP in Sherman Oaks and Marshall A. Caskey and Daniel M. Holzman of Caskey & Holzman in Calabasas.
