PHILADELPHIA — An office manager is suing former employer Advanced Family Practice PC and Carol Struminger, citing alleged failure to remit payroll tax withholdings.
Laura Fanning filed a complaint Aug. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendants violated the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law.
According to the complaint, after receiving notification on June 1, 2017 that the defendants were closing the business, Fanning claims she discovered that the federal government had absolutely no record of her employment with Advanced Family Practice.
Fanning said Advanced Family Practice and Struminger should be held responsible because they allegedly failed to remit payroll taxes that they withheld from their employees’ paychecks and failed to pay monthly Capital Blue Cross insurance premiums.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment in an amount greater of $5,000, litigation costs, fees and expenses and other proper relief. She is represented by Stephanie Mensing of Mensing Law LLC in Philadelphia.
