FORT MYERS — A former employee has filed suit against a retailer, alleging she wasn't paid overtime.
Jenna Southwick filed a complaint on Aug. 11 in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Fort Myers Division, against Pystmo LLC, doing business as Edible Arrangements, and Mark Taylor, alleging that they failed to fairly compensate her.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime wage or her regular rate of pay. The plaintiff holds Pystmo LLC and Mark Taylor responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay the plaintiff any overtime premium for hours worked that exceeded 40 per week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks lost wages, front pay, damages, liquidated damages, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Christopher J. Rush of Christopher J. Rush & Associates P.A. in Boynton Beach.
