A Lloyd Jones LLC employee claims he has not been paid proper overtime wages while working at Shamrock of Sunrise Apartments, a senior living community in Sunrise, Florida.
Lloyd Jones, a real estate investment, development, property management and senior housing management company, has required employees to work on-call shifts for which they did not receive proper time-and-a-half overtime wages, according to the 11-page case.
The plaintiff is a maintenance employee responsible for repairing, painting, plumbing and electric light work in Shamrock’s 119 residential units, the suit says. Per the case, the plaintiff has regularly put in 40 hours per week plus on-call hours during two weeks of every month. The plaintiff’s on-call shifts start at 5:00 p.m. on Mondays and continue until the following Monday at 8:00 a.m., the lawsuit relays. According to the complaint, the plaintiff has been provided with no record or paystub detailing the number of days and hours he worked or his wage rate and taxes withheld.
Although the plaintiff has typically worked an average of 12 on-call hours per week, he’s been paid for only three hours of overtime each week, the case alleges.
“The remaining overtime hours were not paid at any rate, not even at the minimum wage rate, as required by the [Fair Labor Standards Act],” the complaint alleges.
According to the lawsuit, it is in the defendant’s power to keep track of the plaintiff’s hours, and the company has therefore “willfully” failed to pay the worker proper time-and-a-half overtime wages. The case claims Lloyd Jones has similarly denied overtime pay to current and former employees “who are and who were subject to the unlawful payroll practices and procedures” alleged in the lawsuit.
