ORLANDO – An Orange County woman formerly employed as a project manager alleges she was not paid for any overtime work.
Carolyn McConnell filed a complaint on April 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against List Industries Inc. alleging that the defendant violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between Jan. 22, 2013, and Jan. 18, 2017, while employed by the defendant, plaintiff often skipped lunch when the need arose, regularly worked from home on weekends, and regularly worked in excess of 40 hours in a workweek. She alleges was paid on a salary basis but did not receive additional compensation including overtime pay.
The plaintiff holds List Industries Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay overtime compensation at a rate of not less than one-and-one-half times her regular rate of pay for hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a workweek.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for unpaid overtime, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney's fees, costs, any other legal and equitable relief as the court may deem appropriate. She is represented by Mary E. Lytle, David V. Barszcz and Robert N. Sutton of Lytle and Barszcz PA in Maitland.
