PHILADELPHIA — An employee has filed a class action lawsuit against Northern Children's Services, a nonprofit children's therapy center, citing alleged unpaid wages, violation of applicable minimum wage law and violation of Workers' Compensation acts.
Tanea Pratt, an hourly therapeutic staff support worker with the non-profit, filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on March 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania alleging that the employer failed to properly compensate the plaintiff for her work.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she and others sustained damages from not being paid overtime for working more than 40 hours per week. The plaintiff holds Northern Children's Services responsible because it allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff for all the hours she worked during her employment, which began in 2013.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant.
