SAN DIEGO – Current and former employees of a Kings County employer have filed a class action over allegations of labor code violations.
Rosalie Cuevas, Adolfo Gomez-Moreno, Reynaldo Tolano and Agustin Ambriz filed a complaint on behalf of all other similarly situated on March 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Dias & Fragoso Inc., D & F Agricultural Enterprises Inc., Gabriel M. Dias and John L. Fragoso citing state labor codes.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they worked for more than 40 hours per week without being paid any overtime compensation and were not provided adequate meal and rest breaks. The plaintiffs hold Dias & Fragoso Inc., D & F Agricultural Enterprises Inc., Dias and Fragoso responsible because the defendants also allegedly failed to provide itemized wage statements to the plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek general, special, compensatory and liquidated damages; unpaid meal and rest period premiums; unpaid overtime compensation; all legal fees; injunctive relief; interest; and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by John E. Hill and Enrique Martinez of Law Offices of John E. Hill in Oakland.
