SAN FRANCISCO – Two delivery drivers allege that their former employers improperly classified them and that they did not receive overtime pay.
Claude K. Boconvi and James R. Mack filed a complaint on May 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Velocity Express LLC, Transforce Inc. and Dynamex Operations East LLC citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they were misclassified as independent contractors and not provided accurate wage statements. The plaintiffs hold Velocity Express LLC, Transforce Inc. and Dynamex Operations East LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay overtime premiums at a rate of time-and-one-half to the plaintiff for working more than 40 hours per week.
The plaintiffs seek liquidated damages, restitution, actual and statutory damages, all legal fees, interest and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Christopher P. Ridout and Caleb LH Marker of Zimmerman Reed LLP in Manhattan Beach.
