SCRANTON — A nurse's assistant has filed a class action lawsuit against Colonial Park Care Center LLC d/b/a Colonial Park Care Center, citing alleged unpaid wages, violation of applicable minimum wage law and violation of workers compensation acts.
Daaiyah Shabazz of Harrisburg filed a complaint on behalf of those similarly situated on March 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania alleging that the employer failed to compensate the plaintiff for her work.
