SAN DIEGO – A former employee of a San Diego protective and technical security services company alleges that he was paid for overtime work at his regular rate of pay.
Steven McDonough filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on April 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Archstone International LLC and Archstone International Holdings LLC citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendants from June 2017 to March 13, 2018. He alleges he regularly worked more than 40 hours per week and that he was paid his regular rate of pay for the overtime work.
The plaintiffs hold Archstone International LLC and Archstone International Holdings LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly also failed to pay for compensable travel time, failed to provide uninterrupted meal periods and rest breaks and failed to provide accurate, itemized wage statements.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, certification of the suit as a collective action, designate plaintiff/counsel as the class representative/counsel, award restitution, damages, penalties, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees, interest, costs of suit, and other relief as appropriate. He is represented by Timothy G. Blood and Leslie E. Hurst of Blood Hurst & O'Reardon LLP in San Diego; Laura E. Reasons of Dicello Levitt & Casey LLC in Chicago, Illinois; and Mark M. Abramowitza of Dicello Levitt & Casey LLC in Mentor, Ohio.
