Former Sous Chef Wants Florida Golf Club to Fork Over OT Pay

Posted by

On November 6, 2015, former sous chef Marcos Castro initiated a putative class action against a Florida golf club, claiming that the club withheld overtime compensation in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Castro alleges that his former employer, Windstar Club Inc., failed to compensate him with “time-and-a-half” pay for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. Castro claims that other employees in similar positions were also intentionally deprived of overtime compensation and he seeks an expedited order so that he can inform them of the case in an effort to add members to the class action.

Pursuant to the FLSA, employers must pay employees time-and-a-half (i.e. 50 percent of the employees usual hourly rate) for every hour worked in excess of 40 hours per week. Not all employees are entitled to overtime, however. Some employees are “exempt” from the federal overtime laws and therefore are not entitled to overtime compensation. Commonly exempt employees are salaried white collar professionals holding executive, administrative, or professional positions, computer professionals, and outside sales employees. The suit suggests that Castro is a non-exempt employee who performed tasks essential to the club’s business, and is therefore entitled to overtime compensation.

The former sous chef requests that he be compensated for unpaid overtime hours, plus interest, and that he is reimbursed for reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred as a result of the action.

  1. I am the business owner of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently trying to develop my wholesale side of business. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was hoping if someone could suggest a reliable site where I can buy Vape Shop B2B Sales Leads I am already examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the very best option and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
