LOS ANGELES — Two city employees have filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Azusa, alleging unpaid wages and violation of workers compensation acts.
Evan Atencio and Dennis Tremblay filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all similarly situated individuals, Sept. 15 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against the city of Azusa, alleging failure to pay fair wages, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that Evan Atencio and Dennis Tremblay worked more than 40 hours per week over three years without being paid any overtime wages. The suit says the defendant instituted a illegal compensation computation method.
The plaintiffs allege the city failed to pay overtime wages even though the two men worked more than 40 hours per week, violating the FLSA.
Atencio and Tremblay seek unpaid overtime compensation plus interest, liquidated damages, legal fees, injunctive relief, and all other relief the court deems just. They are represented by attorneys David E. Mastagni, Isaac S. Stevens, Ace T. Tate and Ian B. Sangster of Mastagni Holstedt APC in Sacramento.
