SCRANTON – An Auburn man alleges his former Michigan employers owe him unpaid wages.
Christopher Byelick filed a complaint on Aug. 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against Triad Service Center Inc. and Morrison Industrial Equipment Co. citing the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendants from February 2015 through January as a field service technician. He alleges he worked 70 to 80 hours per week during his employment but was not properly paid for all of the hours worked.
The plaintiff holds Triad Service Center Inc. and Morrison Industrial Equipment Co. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay plaintiff for all hours worked, failed to pay for overtime work at a rate of time-and-one-half and failed to keep proper time records.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, liquidated damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Ari R. Karpf of Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti PC in Bensalem.
