ALLENTOWN – An Illinois resident has filed suit against his former Hamburg-headquartered employer over allegations he is owed unpaid wages.
Jeffrey Haag filed a complaint on Nov. 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Penn Graphics Equipment Inc. citing the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendant from February 2014 to January 2017. He alleges he worked an average of 60 hours per week.
The plaintiff holds Penn Graphics Equipment Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay overtime premium compensation to the plaintiff despite working at least 60 hours per week and also failed to pay $20,000 worth of service work.
The plaintiff seeks unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Peter Winebrake, R. Andrew Santillo and Mark J. Gottesfeld of Winebrake & Santillo LLC in Dresher.
