FORT MYERS – A dietary manager is suing her former employer over allegations she was not paid overtime wages.
Nancy Brown filed a complaint on March 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Fort Myers Division against Greystone Healthcare Management Corp., alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she did not receive minimum hourly wage or any overtime pay for all her hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. The plaintiff holds Greystone Healthcare Management Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly misclassified her as an exempt employee and required and permitted her to work for 65 hours per week without proper compensation.
The plaintiff seeks the following: a judgment in her favor requiring defendant to pay her for an amount based on evidence, plus liquidated damages, reasonable attorneys' fees, costs and interest. She is represented by Benjamin H. Yormak of Yormak Employment & Disability Law in Bonita Springs.
