Coast to Coast and Former Sales Rep Resolve Overtime Pay Suit Outside Court, According to Court Documents
November 30, 2010
Coast to Coast Auto Glass and former sales representative Ulysses Mejia have resolved the suit Mejia filed against the company outside court, according to documents filed in the case. In the suit, Mejia alleged 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."
Terms of the settlement have not been disclosed, and the parties expect to finalize the agreement within five to ten days, according to a notice filed with the court.
Mejia had previously filed a motion week indicating that he was in negotiations with the company in an attempt to resolve the claims.
This is one of two suits pending against the company for overtime pay allegations. A second suit was filed in early November in the state of New York involving a similar claim.
Coast to Coast counsel Rebecca Shwayri of Carlton Fields P.A. in Tampa, Fla., who signed the “Notice of Settlement” with the court, declined to comment on the case. Robert S. Norell of Robert S. Norell P.A., counsel for Mejia, could not be reached for comment.
