SAN FRANCISCO – A store manager has filed a class-action suit against his former employer over allegations of violations of labor laws.
Carlos Aguirre filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Dec. 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Aaron's Inc., doing business as Aaron's Sales & Lease Ownership, and Does 1-50 alleging violations of labor and business and professions codes.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for the defendant from 2009 to 2016. The plaintiff holds Aaron's Inc. and Does 1-50 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide accurate wage statements to the plaintiff, failed to pay overtime, failed to provide meal and rest breaks and misclassified him as exempt.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid wages, actual damages, liquidated damages, restitution, all legal fees and interest and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Shaun Setareh and Thomas Segal of Setareh Law Group in Beverly Hills.
