SHERMAN — A former assistant manager of the Suburban Extended Stay in Lewisville alleges her job was misclassified as exempt and that she was not compensated for overtime.
Sandra Rodrugues filed a complaint Nov. 13 in the Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas against KFS Lewisville Properties LLC, doing business as Suburban Extended Stay Hotel and Columbia Hospitality Management LLC, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Rodrigues alleges she began work as front desk agent at the Suburban Extended Stay in February 2015. Seven months later, the suit states, she was given the title of assistant manager. Although her job duties remained the same, Rodrigues argues she worked seven-hour days and was also "on call." She alleges at the time of her title change, the company misclassified her as an exempt employee and failed to compensate her for overtime at the rate of 1 1/2 her rate of pay as required by FLSA.
Rodrigues seeks monetary relief, interest, trial by jury and all other just relief. She is represented by attorneys Laura Calhoun, John Mongogna and Baleigh Cherry of The Albin Law Group in Frisco.
