CLEARWATER — A former employee is suing The Transition House Inc., alleging a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Gail Dye filed a complaint May 9 in the Pinellas Circuit Court against The Transition House alleging that the Florida company failed its duty to pay employees for all hours worked.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she has suffered lost earnings from the defendant's wrongful practice of denying her with earned wages for all overtime hours worked and for all meal breaks not taken.
The plaintiff holds The Transition House responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly apprise its employees of their rights under the FLSA, failed to keep or provide an accurate record of its employees' hours worked, and failed to compensate its employees of overtime wages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks a judgment against the defendant for unpaid overtime, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees and costs. She is represented by Christina Thomas Mazaheri and Bernard R. Mazaheri of Morgan & Morgan in Lexington, Kentucky.
