SAN FRANCISCO – Employees at a Berkeley university allege they were not paid properly compensated for overtime work.
Todd Miller and Michael Hursch filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on April 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Regents of the University of California and Does 1 through 10 alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the defendants impermissibly excluded certain remunerations and undervalued their regular rate of pay, which affected the rate at which they were paid overtime.
The plaintiffs seek unpaid overtime compensation, interest, liquidated damages, unpaid compensation, all legal fees, injunctive relief, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Michael D. Nelson of Workers Rights Law Office in San Francisco.
