A man is suing his former employer for overtime worked, alleging that he was not fairly compensated for his time.
Dale Ramoutar filed a class action complaint Sept. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Brendan Stanton Inc., BSI Electrical Contractors Inc., Brendan Stanton and Jean Stanton, citing violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.
Ramoutar purports that during his employment as an electrician with Stanton between May 2011 and September 2014, he and his fellow electricians routinely worked overtime and through their lunch break without any monetary compensation. Additionally, the employees would regularly arrive early, outside of their regular work schedule, to complete manual labor. It is alleged that the defendant was outside of its rights in expecting employees to work overtime without pay.
Ramoutar is seeking monetary compensation for all legal fees, as well as back pay for all unpaid hours. Ramoutar is represented by Diana J. Nobile of Woodley and McGillivary LLC in Washington, D.C.
