LOS ANGELES — A California woman has filed a class action lawsuit against her former employers, alleging unfair competition, unpaid wages and violation of applicable minimum wage laws.
Jessica Apac filed a complaint, as an individual and on behalf of all others similarly situated, March 6 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Cashcall Inc., Loanme Inc. and Does 1-100, alleging they failed to provide employees with proper wages, benefits and incentives.
According to the complaint, Apac and other similarly situated employees, have suffered loss of earnings for working additional hours in excess of 40 per week, but were not paid proper overtime wages by the defendant at the statutory rate of one and a half their regular rate of pay as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Moreover, the suit says, the defendants failed to provide overtime wages, failed to provide meal and rest periods, failed to pay for all hours worked, failed to pay for all wages owed upon termination, and failed to provide accurate itemized wage statements.
Apac seeks trial by jury, certify the proposed classes, appoint her as representative and counsel, compensatory, consequential, general and special damages, interest, due and unpaid wages. They are represented by attorneys Paul K. Haines, Tuvia Korobkin and Sean M. Blakely of Haines Law Group APC in El Segundo.
