SCRANTON — Three employees have filed a class action lawsuit against Bimbo Bakeries USA Inc., and Bimbo Foods Bakeries Distribution LLC, citing alleged unpaid wages and violation of Workers' Compensation acts.
Leroy Pritchard, Anthony Legare and Steven Austin filed the complaint on June 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendants failed to pay wages to them for the total number of hours they worked.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they were damaged from working more than 40 hours without being paid overtime. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to pay them overtime wages, including other out-of-pocket expenditures.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek payment of all overtime wages, reimbursement of all improper pay deductions, liquidated damages, interest, court costs and any further relief this court grants. They are represented by Peter Winebrake, R. Andrew Santillo and Mark J. Gottesfeld of Winebrake & Santillo LLC in Dresher.
