PHILADELPHIA -- A Douglassville woman is suing a Berks County urgent care facility and its owner, alleging unpaid overtime.

Heather Brown filed a lawsuit Jan. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Mehdi Nikparvar and Advanced Urgent Care of Sinking Spring, alleging unpaid overtime wages in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.

According to the complaint, when Brown worked as a manager and X-ray technician at the defendants' facility, from August 2014 to September 2015, she frequently worked more than 40 hours per week. The suit alleges the defendants paid Brown $16 per hour but did not pay her an overtime premium for time worked more than 40 hours per week.

Brown seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, interests, attorney fees and other litigation costs. She is represented by attorneys Peter Winebrake, R. Andrew Santillo and Mark J. Gottesfeld of Winebrake & Santillo in Dresher.
