HOUSTON – A former carpenter of a company that designs, remodels and customizes restaurant furniture alleges that he was not paid at the appropriate rate for overtime work.
Cecilio Reynozo, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on May 2 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against LDCM International Inc. and Golden Town International LP alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that during his employment with defendant as a carpenter from approximately December 2017 through April 2018, he regularly worked more than 40 hours per week without receiving proper overtime compensation.
The plaintiff holds LDCM International Inc. and Golden Town International LP responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain accurate time and pay records and failed to pay overtime compensation at a rate of no less than one-and-one-half times employees' regular rate of pay.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order allowing this action to proceed as a collective action, award for all unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees, costs, post-judgment interest and such other and further relief to which he is justly entitled. He is represented by Melissa Moore and Bridget Davidson of Moore & Associates in Houston.
