ERIE – A Butler woman alleges she was terminated in retaliation for complaining about not being paid for all hours worked.
Renee Iannotti filed a complaint on July 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against St. Barnabas Health System Inc. and The Woodlands at St. Barnabas Inc. citing the Fair Labor Standard Act and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff frequently was required to work off-the-clock while employed by the defendant. She alleges that she was terminated on March 13 after she complained about wage and hour violations with the company in January.
The plaintiff holds St. Barnabas Health System Inc. and The Woodlands at St. Barnabas Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay minimum and overtime wages to the plaintiff.
The plaintiff seeks all wages and damages, overtime wages, liquidated damages, compensatory and punitive damages, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by David B. Spear and Nick Kennedy of Minto Law Group LLC in Pittsburgh.
