LAS VEGAS, July 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A class action lawsuit has been filed against A Cab LLC of Las Vegas, Nevada on behalf of their taxi drivers who were not paid minimum wage.
In the lawsuit, entitled Dubric v. A Cab LLC, Clark County District Court Case No. A-15-721063-C, plaintiff alleges that A Cab failed to pay minimum wage, and had a policy and practice of crediting tips toward the payment of minimum wage in violation of Nevada law. The plaintiff also claims that A Cab made unlawful deductions from her wages, causing her pay, and the pay of the other drivers, to fall below minimum wage. The plaintiff is represented by Mark J. Bourassa, Esq. and Trent L. Richards, Esq. of The Bourassa Law Group in Las Vegas, Nevada. "It's a shame to see such a prominent local company breaking the minimum wage rules and short changing their employees," said Bourassa.
In 2014, the Nevada Supreme Court ruled that taxi drivers must be paid at least minimum wage. This ruling upheld a 2006 state constitutional amendment that increased the minimum wage and did away with a 1965 law that used to exempt cab drivers from this minimum wage requirement.
The Bourassa Law Group represents aggrieved people both individually and in class actions in employment matters, debt collection, personal injury, and construction defect claims. The firm has attorneys admitted to practice throughout Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, California, Missouri and Florida.
