SAN FRANCISCO – A safety attendant for a Texas-based company engaged in oil drilling services alleges the company violated state labor codes.
Harold Jones filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on April 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against CertifiedSafety Inc. alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and California labor codes.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he has been employed by the defendant since 2011. The plaintiff holds Certifiedsafety Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate meal and rest breaks to the plaintiff, failed to pay minimum or overtime wages, failed to reimburse employees for business expenditures, failed to provide accurate wage statements and failed to timely pay wages upon termination.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid wages, injunctive relief, liquidated damages, restitution, actual damages, punitive damages, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by Carolyn Hunt Cottrell, Nicole N. Coon, Keenan L. Klein and David C. Leimbach of Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky Wotkyns LLP in Emeryville.
