SACRAMENTO – Two Rancho Cordova residents who worked for a company for a few days earlier this summer allege they are owed unpaid overtime wages.
Victor Spikes and Victor Spikes Jr. filed a complaint on July 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against The Builder Inc., Charles Ray Beard and Does 1-10 alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs were employed as dry wallers for the defendants at their Redding location for roughly one week in May. The plaintiffs allege that they were paid a flat hourly rate of $33 per hour regardless of the amount of hours worked. They also allege that they were not provided accurate pay stubs and were rarely permitted to take uninterrupted meal periods.
The plaintiffs hold The Builder Inc., Beard and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay them at a rate of one-and-one-half times their regular rate of pay for overtime work.
The plaintiffs seek judgment against defendants for actual, consequential, liquidated and incidental losses and damages; statutory penalties; interest; attorney’s fees; and costs; and all other relief as the court may deem just. They are represented by Matthew F. Archbold and David D. Deason of Deason & Archbold in Huntington Beach.
