Los Angeles, CA: A putative wage and hour class action lawsuit has been filed against Hilton Worldwide Inc, alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the California labor law Act. In addition to Hilton Worldwide, named defendants include Doubletree LLC, and Crestline Hotels and Resorts LLC.
Filed by Nelson Chico, the lawsuit, entitled Nelson Chico v. Hilton Worldwide Inc. et al., case number BC541043 in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles, alleges failure to pay overtime wages and failure to provide meal or rest breaks. Chico, a former employee, claims the defendants also allowed or required employees to work off the clock.
Further, the lawsuit states the defendants failed to provide itemized statements for each pay period, failed to keep accurate records and failed to compensate employees for necessary expenditures.
The potential employment class action seeks to represent aggrieved employees who worked for the defendants within the past four years. The lawsuit is seeking damages in the amount of the unpaid wages plus 10 percent interest and attorneys' fees, as well as an order enjoining the defendants from further violating the California Labor Code.
