PHILADELPHIA – An employee of a Malvern-headquartered company alleges he and other workers are owed unpaid overtime wages.
William Matthews filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Feb. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against BioTelemetry Inc., doing business as CardioNet, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he is employed by the defendant as a remote holter technician and regularly works for more than 40 hours per week.
The plaintiff holds BioTelemetry Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff any overtime wage for hours worked more than 40 hours per week at a rate of one-and-one-half of his regular rate of pay. He also alleges that the defendant unlawfully misclassified him as an independent contractor.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid overtime wages, interest, court costs, other damages and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Michael Murphy and Michael Groh of Murphy Law Group LLC in Philadelphia.
