SAN FRANCISCO – A man formerly employed as a truck driver for a transportation company alleges he was improperly classified as an independent contractor.
Fernando Gomez, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Dec. 3 in the San Francisco Superior Court against Roadrunner Transportation Services Inc. alleging violation of California Labor Codes.
According to the complaint, Gomez and the class of employees were allegedly misclassified by defendants as independent contractors. He alleges as a result, he and the class were not paid all wages due and other violations. The suit states the plaintiff was employed by the defendant from 1986 to 2017.
The plaintiff holds Roadrunner Transportation Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay all wages, failed to provide legally mandated meal periods, failed to provide accurate itemized wage statements and failed to pay wages upon termination of employment.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for compensatory and general damages, attorneys' fees, costs of suit, civil penalties and such other and further relief as the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Kevin Mahoney and Edward Kim of Mahoney Law Group APC in Long Beach.
