FRESNO – A former employee of a Fresno County business alleges he is owed unpaid wages and that he was not provided breaks during his employment.
David Rivera filed a complaint on June 13 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Producers Dairy Foods Inc., Joe Garcia and Does 1 through 100, alleging that the defendants violated California’s Unfair Competition Law, Business & Professions Code and Labor Code.
According to the complaint, on July 28, 2015, Rivera was hired and started working for the defendants as a filler operator and was terminated on Jan. 27. He claims during his employment, he was not provided appropriate meal breaks and not paid compensation in a timely manner.
The plaintiff holds Producers Dairy Foods Inc., Garcia and Does 1 through 100 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide paid meal and rest periods and failed to furnish compliant wage statements.
The plaintiff seeks payment for all earned wages, injunctive relief, prejudgment interest, attorney's fees, costs, punitive damages and for such further relief as the court may deem appropriate. He is represented by Tory Erickson and Joel Ezoory of Lawyers for Employee and Consumer Rights in Burbank.
