PHILADELPHIA — A security supervisor has filed a class-action lawsuit against Allied Universal; Universal Protection Service LLC; and other individuals with those entities, citing alleged unpaid wages, violation of applicable minimum wage law, and violation of workers compensation acts.
Archard "Archie" Simmons filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on March 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants alleging that they failed to adequately compensate the plaintiff for his work. Simmons is an employee in the title of "site supervisor" of the security company.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he sustained damages from not being paid proper wages. Simmons holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff any overtime and failed to pay minimum wages.
Simmons and counsel request a trial by jury and injunction against the defendant, unpaid overtime wages, restitution, liquidated damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. The plaintiffs are represented by Arkady Rayz and Demetri A. Braynin of Kalikhman & Rayz LLC in Huntingdon Valley as well as Gerald Wells III of Connolly Wells & Gray LLP in King of Prussia.
