SACRAMENTO – A man alleges a California city used in illegal compensation method to pay its employees and has filed a class action.
Chris Mraz filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all similarly situated individuals on Nov. 2 in the
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California
against the city of Manteca alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, Mraz and class members were employed by the defendant on various times, but have all suffered injuries, including underpayment for overtime hours worked. The plaintiff holds the city of Manteca responsible because the defendant allegedly implemented an illegal compensation method that undercounted plaintiff’s regular rate of pay and failed to compensate plaintiff for cashing out compensatory time off and/or medical contributions.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendants, unpaid overtime compensation and interest, attorneys' fees, costs of action, injunctive relief and further relief as the court deems just. He is represented by David E. Mastagni, Isaac S. Stevens and Ace T. Tate of Mastagni Holstedt in Sacramento.
