HARRISBURG — An employee has filed a class-action lawsuit that claims he was not paid proper overtime wages.
Brandon DeLaney sued
FTS International Services LLC and J-W Energy and John Does 1-10 on April 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendants violated the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Pennsylvania Wage Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that during his employment he regularly worked more than 40 hours per week but was not properly compensated. The plaintiff holds FTS International Services LLC and J-W Energy and John Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly misclassified him as an exempt employee, paid him only half of his regular rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 per week and failed to maintain proper time records.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order prohibiting defendants from continuing their alleged illegal policy, compensation for all damages, liquidated damages, costs and expenses for this action and all equitable and legal relief as the court may deem appropriate. He is represented by Matthew D. Miller of Swartz Swidler LLC in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania Case number 4:16-cv-00662
