PITTSBURGH – A Pittsburgh-headquartered staffing firm is alleged to have only paid straight time regardless of the number of hours an employee worked.
Thomas Hobbs filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated on Feb. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against System One Holdings LLC alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff is a resident of North Carolina and was employed by the defendant from December 2014 to September 2016. He alleges he regularly worked more than 40 hours per work week but was paid the same hourly rate.
The plaintiff holds System One Holdings LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay overtime wages to the plaintiff at a rate of time-and-one-half of his regular rate of pay.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, court costs, interest and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Michael A. Josephson and Andrew Dunlap of Joseph Dunlap in Houston, Texas and Joshua P. Geist of Goodrich & Geist PC in Pittsburgh.
