The suit seeks more than $1.8 million in unpaid back wages for approximately 386 employees.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, follows a Labor Department investigation of the company, which is based in Gardena, California .

The lawsuit alleges that the company underpaid workers in violation of the minimum wage and overtime provisions of the FLSA and that the employers, Sergio Maldonado and Lorenza Rubio, both of Rolling Hills, failed to keep accurate records of employees and the hours they worked.

The East Los Angeles office of the department's Wage and Hour Division says it launched an investigation after hearing complaints about the company's practices through its participation in the Employment Education and Outreach (EMPLEO) partnership. EMPLEO is an alliance of organizations and government agencies that assist Spanish-speaking workers and employers with work-related concerns.
