A Taco Bell employee who worked at both the Ronkonkoma and Farmingville restaurants is suing the company for what he claims are violations of state labor laws related to overtime pay.
According to Waiterpay.com, an online news outlet that covers the restaurant service industry, the suit was filed on July 30 by Augustine Castillo, who charges that both locations had failed to pay him and other assistant managers overtime for when they worked more than 40 hours in the week.
The suit was filed with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, according to the article. Castillo and the other plaintiffs are seeking back-pay on wages, overtime pay, liquidated damages and lawyer's fees.
A call to Taco Bell's public relations department was not returned.
