Employees are suing a service supply chain management provider claiming that they were not fairly compensated for past overtime work.
Maria Devlin and Julie Thumm, on the behalf of numerous other employees, filed a claim on Sept. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Ferrandino and Son Inc., alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The plaintiffs claim that between the dates of July 2012 and December 2014 they routinely worked overtime, on weekends and evenings, without overtime pay from the defendant. Following a change in pay policy, employees began to be paid for overtime hours, however, the company failed to provide back pay for previously worked overtime hours. Plaintiffs purport that failure to provide these funds is a violation of lawful pay practices and of the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.
As a result, Devlin, Thumm and various other employees are seeking compensation in the form of back pay for all unpaid overtime, as well as the funds to cover all legal costs. They are represented by Shanon J. Carson, Sarah R. Schalman-Bergen, Alexandra K. Piazza and Camille Fundora of Berger and Montague, PC of Philadelphia.
