LOS ANGELES – A National City employer is alleged to have not paid contributions to a labor organization.
Construction Laborers Trust Funds for Southern California Administrative Co. filed a complaint on Feb. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Carolino Traffic Control Inc., doing business as Carolino Builders, citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages due to late and unpaid contributions from January 2012 to January 2016. The plaintiff holds Carolino Traffic Control Inc., doing business as Carolino Builders, responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay fringe benefit contributions on behalf of its employees to the labor group, which is a breach of their bargaining agreement.
The plaintiff seeks sum of $13,297.87, interest of $5,780.31, liquidated damages, audit costs of $800, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Alexander B. Cvitan, J. David Sackman and Marsha M. Hamasaki of Reich, Adell & Cvitan in Los Angeles.
