Saudi prince sued in Los Angeles by his chef

Complaining about working 13-to 14-hour shifts without overtime pay or any days off, a chef has filed a lawsuit at Los Angeles Superior Court against a Saudi Arabian prince.

Pedro Gomez sued Prince Saud Bin Faisal Bin Abdul Aziz al Saud, his wife and daughter, alleging that the family made him work overtime at a Beverly Hills estate in Los Angeles, according to court papers made public on Monday.

The prince, also known as Prince Saud Al Faisal, has been foreign minister of Saudi Arabia since 1975, and is a son of the late Saudi king, Faisal bin Abdul Aziz.

A representative for the prince and his family was not immediately available for comment on the lawsuit, which was filed last Wednesday.

Gomez worked for the prince from 1999 until March 30 of this year, when he was fired, according to court papers. He alleges he prepared three meals for about 30 people a day, worked 13 to 14 hours a day and did not get overtime pay.

Gomez also maintains he was denied meal breaks and rest periods, and that the prince failed to deduct payroll taxes or report withholdings.

"As foreign minister of Saudi Arabia, Prince Saud is responsible ... for diplomatic relations between Saudi Arabia and the United States," the lawsuit states.

But the prince and his family members "exploit their employees by refusing to pay overtime wages and denying their employees timeoff, meal breaks and rest periods," the plaintiff alleges.

Gomez is asking for compensatory and punitive damages, restitution and back pay.
