LOS ANGELES – A former sales representative for an Ontario office has filed a class-action suit over claims she was not adequately compensated.
Charmelle Fossett filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Dec. 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Brady Corp., AIO Acquisition Inc. and Does 1 to 10 citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she worked for more than 40 hours per week for the defendants without being paid any overtime compensation. The plaintiff holds Brady Corp., AIO Acquisition Inc. and Does 1 to 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay overtime wages to the plaintiff and did not calculate commissions into her regular rate of pay when calculating overtime.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, unpaid wages, restitution, statutory penalties, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Joseph R. Becerra of Becerra Law Firm in Long Beach; Torey Joseph Favarote of Gleason & Favorote LLP in Long Beach; and William O. Kampf of Long Beach.
