Broward County Man Claims He Was Fired From Chicken Kitchen After Complaining He Never Received Overtime Pay

January 30, 2017

A Broward County man alleges a Plantation restaurant only paid his regular wage rate for overtime hours and that he was retaliated against for complaining about the pay practices.

The man filed a complaint on behalf of himself and other similarly situated individuals on Jan. 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

According to the complaint, the man claims that on Nov. 10, 2016, his work hours were reduced and he was subsequently terminated by the company in retaliation for his demand to be adequately paid overtime wages for hours worked in excess of 40. The man holds the company accountable because they allegedly failed to pay plaintiff for overtime compensation at the correct rate and failed to maintain proper time records of all hours worked.

He is seeking actual damages for unpaid overtime wages, interest, double/liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees, costs of suit, and further relief as the court deems just.
