LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) - A Los Angeles county man is suing his employer over claims of lost wages and compensation while dutifully employed by the company.
James Motty filed a class action lawsuit in the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County on Sept. 23 against First Student Inc., for whom he was employed as a bus driver for at least 12 years.
Motty alleges that First Student failed to pay for wages for required off-the-clock work, failed to pay minimum wages, gave out inaccurate pay statements, failed to pay all wages due upon end of employment, delivered unfair business practices and breach of oral contract pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedures and Business and Professions Code. Motty also claims that he was treated unfairly and when he inquired about his wages, the company would not cooperate.
The plaintiff is suing for an undisclosed amount plus court costs. He is being represented by Michael Boyamian of the Law Offices of Thomas W. Falvey in Glendale, Calif. The judge presiding over this case is Kenneth Freeman.
