SCRANTON — A Jefferson Township man is suing Gibbons Ford L.P., John Grow and John Grow d/b/a Gibbons Ford, citing alleged unpaid wages, violation of applicable minimum wage law, violation of state law and violation of workers compensation acts.
Scott Pleickhardt filed a complaint on March 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against the Dickson City service center and its owner alleging that they failed to properly compensate him for his work. He also claimed the company wrongly made deductions from his paycheck to cover what it claimed were damages he caused to customer vehicles, which Pleickhardt denies.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he sustained damages from not being fully compensated for his work. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed and refused to pay minimum wage to the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory, liquidated and punitive damages, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Peter C. Wood Jr. of Law Office of Peter C. Wood Jr. PC in Kingston.
