Deadline Extended for Former Coast to Coast Sales Repís Statement of Claim, According to Court Documents
November 22, 2010
Coast to Coast Auto Glass former sales representative Ulysses Mejia’s deadline to present his statement of claim in an ongoing suit involving allegations of overtime pay owed has been extended to December 1, according to court documents filed in the case.
Mejia had filed a motion last week indicating that he was in negotiations with the company in an attempt to resolve the claims, and was hoping the extension would give him time to do so.
Coast to Coast recently missed its October 29 deadline to respond to the suit, and the court had ruled that Mejia needed to submit his own "Motion for Default Final Judgment" by November 22.
In the original suit, filed October 6, Mejia alleges that between August 27, 2010, and September 21, 2010, Coast to Coast "willfully violated the [Fair Labor Standards Act] by employing employees engaged in commerce for workweeks longer than 40 hours without compensating them for their employment in excess of 40 hours at rates not less than one and a half times the regular rates at which they were employed."
In addition, Mejia alleges that he specifically worked more than 40 hours a week every week of his employment during this time, and was not paid time and a half for the hours in excess of 40.
This is one of two suits pending against the company for overtime pay allegations. A second suit was filed just two weeks ago in the state of New York involving a similar claim.
