PHILADELPHIA – A New Jersey-based court reporter has alleged that her employer has violated the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law (WPCL) when it failed to compensate her for her professional services.
Patricia Ann Terracciano of Bordentown, N.J. filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Oct. 20 versus A&A Court Reporting and Andrea St. John, both of Philadelphia.
At all times, according to the litigation, Terracciano performed court reporting services for the defendant according to the assignments she was given, for an agreed-upon price. The suit says though Terracciano was compensated for her services, a balance of $2.593.45 remains outstanding and the defendants have refused to pay it.
For violation of the WPCL and an additional count of breach of contract, the plaintiff is seeking damages not in excess of $50,000, plus attorney’s fees, costs and expenses she has incurred in bringing this action, the additional damages authorized by the WPCL and all other relief the Court finds appropriate, just and equitable.
The plaintiff is represented by George Bochetto of Bochetto & Lentz, in Philadelphia.
