SAN FRANCISCO – Current and former San Rafael employees allege that they were not properly compensated for overtime work.
Anthony Alviso, Sam Achondo, Melissa Ainsworth et al. filed a complaint on behalf of themselves and all similarly situated individuals on Dec. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the city of San Rafael alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they have incurred some overtime, however defendant’s past and current practice of computing overtime has reduced the amount being paid to plaintiffs and similarly situated individuals by failing to compute all required amounts into the regular rate of pay.
The plaintiffs hold the city of San Rafael responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide overtime pay at the proper rate, failed to properly compute and use the correct regular rate of pay in calculating overtime compensation owed to plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment declaring that the defendant deprived plaintiffs of their rights, protections and entitlements under federal law; accounting of all the compensation, back pay compensation; liquidated damages; interest; attorneys’ fees; costs of action; and further relief as the court deems proper. They are represented by Gregg McLean Adam of Messing Adam & Jasmine LLP in San Francisco.
