HOUSTON — An employee suing a Harris County auto sales business, alleging he was not paid the proper overtime rate.
Victor Eduard Villegas filed a complaint July 1 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Latinos Unidos Auto Sales LLC, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, Villegas was employed by Latinos Unidos from March 2018 to April 29, 2019.
