A Canadensis man is filing a class action lawsuit against his former employer over claims of unpaid overtime.
Christopher Iwaskow filed suit against C.F. Marts of Pennsylvania Inc. on Oct. 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, citing violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act for a class period from October 2012 to present day.
According to the complaint, C.F. Marts failed to pay overtime hours to several similarly situated hourly employees of their Convenient Food Marts and City Market Cafes. Iwaskow alleges he has worked weeks in excess of 60 hours without overtime pay in a violation of state and federal law until his employment ended in September.
The plaintiff seeks unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, attorney fees and costs of litigation.
He is represented by Peter Winebrake, R. Andrew Santillo and Mark J. Gottesfeld of Winebrake and Santillo of Dresher.
