PHILADELPHIA — A former employee is suing Berger Real Estate Investment Inc. and Arnold Berger, alleging that the employers violated wage laws and wrongfully terminated him.
Kenneth Thompson filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, alleging that he was not compensated fairly and was terminated in connection with a workplace accident that caused injuries.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, between 2008 and 2016, he worked for more than 40 hours per week without being paid an overtime premium, and that he was fired when he fell on stairs in a manner that would have caused the initiation of a Workers' Compensation claim, and he holds the defendants responsible for both situations.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants for compensatory damages in an amount that exceeds $150,000 plus back and front pay, punitive damages, interest, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Andrew S. Abramson of Abramson Employment Law, LLC in Blue Bell.
