NEW ORLEANS – A Louisiana man says Diversified Concrete owes him and other laborers for unpaid overtime wages.
Pedro Leon filed a class-action lawsuit Nov. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Diversified Concrete and its owners, Ryan Rogers and Bradley Rogers, alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, Leon began working for Diversified in February, earning $12 an hour for digging, molding, rebar and pouring concrete. Although he routinely worked more than 40 hours a week, the suit claims he was never paid time and a half for hours he worked beyond 40.
Leon seeks a jury trial, reimbursement for unpaid overtime wages, pre- and post-judgment interest, litigation costs, and damages . He is represented by Roberto Luis Costales and William H. Beaumont of New Orleans.
