SAN DIEGO – A Bloomington man alleges that he was not paid a minimum wage while employed as a driver for logistics and delivery companies.
Fernando Salazar filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on April 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Cross Country Logistics Inc., Hollywood Delivery Service Inc., Restoration Hardware Inc. and Does 1-10 alleging failure to pay minimum wages, failure to provide meal periods and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendants as a driver from March 2015 to March 2016. He alleges he was paid a flat wage of $120 to $150 a day regardless of the number of hours he worked.
The plaintiffs hold Cross Country Logistics Inc., Hollywood Delivery Service Inc., Restoration Hardware Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to properly maintain timekeeping and payroll records, failed to pay minimum wage compensation as required by the law and did not provide meal periods.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, certify class action, appoint plaintiff and counsel as class representative and counsel, award compensatory damages, interest, costs, attorney's fees, liquidated damages, and further relief as the court deems proper. He is represented by James Hawkins of James Hawkins APLC in Irvine and Kevin J. Stoops and Charles R. Ash IV of Sommers Schwartz PC in Southfield, Michigan.
