NEW ORLEANS – A man has filed a class-action lawsuit two communications companies alleging that technicians and installers were not paid overtime wages.
Scott Gremillion filed a complaint on behalf of all similarly situated on June 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Cox Communications Inc. and Grayco Communications LP alleging that they violated Louisiana law and the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was improperly paid at a rate less than one-and-one-half of his hourly rate and for which he was paid below minimum wage. The plaintiff holds Cox Communications Inc. and Grayco Communications LP responsible because the defendants allegedly willfully failed to properly compensate him for all hours he worked and failed to keep proper time records and pay wages in accordance with the provisions of the FLSA.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks interest, liquidated damages, attorney fees and costs and all other legal and equitable relief to which he may be entitled. He is represented by George B. Recile, Preston L. Hayes, Ryan P. Monsour, Matthew A. Sherman and Patrick R. Follette of CheHardy, Sherman, Williams, Murray, Recile, Stakelum and Hayes LLP in Metairie.
