John McEnroe Tennis Academy and two individuals with operational control of the Manhattan sports training facility have been hit with a lawsuit filed by a former driver who claims he was not paid properly for overtime work.
According to the proposed collective and class action, the plaintiff transported kids from schools to the tennis academy and from the academy to their homes from April 2016 to December 2017. The man alleges he typically clocked between 48 and 56 hours each week without lawful time-and-a-half overtime wages. Specifically, the plaintiff claims that he was improperly paid at his straight-time hourly rate of $14 for every hour worked until March 2017, after which he received $16.50 for overtime hours.
The man also seeks statutory damages after he was allegedly deprived of a state-mandated wage notice upon being hired and accurate wage statements throughout his employment.
