PITTSBURGH — A former employee has filed a class action lawsuit against Mudtech Services L.P., alleging violation of Pennsylvania and Ohio wage laws.
Allen Gallow filed a complaint on Nov. 17 in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County against Mudtech Services L.P., alleging that the employer failed to provide proper compensation to the plaintiff for his work.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked well over 40 hours per week but was not paid an overtime premium. The plaintiff holds Mudtech Services L.P. responsible because the defendant allegedly misclassified the plaintiff as an independent contractor in order to avoid paying overtime wages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid back wages, interest, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Joshua P. Geist of Goodrich & Geist, P.C. in Pittsburgh.
