UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA Case No.: 12-cv-81185-SCOLA/HOPKINS ERICK LARA, on his own behalf and on behalf of others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. QSGI GREEN, INC., a Delaware corporation, THE GASKET GUY, INC., a Florida corporation, and HANK LAWS, individually, Defendants. _______________________________________/ Plaintiff, ERICK LARA, by and through the undersigned counsel, hereby files his Statement of Claim, and states as follows: Plaintiff was employed by Defendants, between approximately June 2009 and September 2012. Within the 2 year statute of limitations1, which looks back October 2010, he was employed approximately 88 work weeks. During this time, Plaintiff worked approximately 8 hours of overtime on average each week. Plaintiff was paid on a piece rate basis, and earned an average of $600.00 in piece rate compensation each week. When Plaintiff worked overtime hours, he was not paid any additional compensation those hours. Based on the foregoing, Plaintiff is owed the following: $600.00/48 hours = $12.50 $12.50/2 = $6.25 $6.25 x 8 hours x 88 weeks = $4,400.00 To the extent discovery reveals that more hours were worked on average than are estimated herein, there may be an increase in the damages for this claim.
