SAN FRANCISCO — Employees have filed a class-action lawsuit against Fernandez Brothers Inc., citing alleged unpaid wages and violation of minimum wage and workers' compensation laws.
Regina Gonzales Gomez and Fidel Guerrero Comofort filed a complaint on April 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California alleging that the defendants failed to pay them fair wages.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages from not being paid minimum wages and from not being paid all wages upon termination. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to provide adequate meals and rest breaks to the plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek damages for unpaid minimum wages, liquidated damages, unpaid rest period wages, unpaid premium wages, restitution, penalties for inaccurate wage statements, unpaid wages, actual damages, statutory damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Gregory N. Karasik of Karasik Law Firm in Los Angeles.
