PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia woman is suing AIT Worldwide Logistics Inc., citing alleged unpaid wages, violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act and violation of Workers' Compensation acts.
Cynthia Fields, who worked as an operations manager for AIT, filed a complaint on March 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Philadelphia alleging that the employer failed to provide adequate compensation to the plaintiff by wrongly claiming she was exempt from overtime pay.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she sustained damages from not being paid overtime wages. The plaintiff holds AIT responsible because it allegedly misclassified the plaintiff in order to avoid paying overtime wages even though she routinely worked over 40 hours per week and sometimes more than 60.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks economic damages, earned and paid time off and any further relief the court grants.
