Bethanna, an organization that provides adoption, child welfare and health care services in Pennsylvania, is the defendant in a proposed class and collective action filed by an employee who alleges she has not received the overtime wages owed to her under federal and state law.
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff is employed in Philadelphia as a “case manager” by the defendant and is paid an annual salary of around $43,000. The plaintiff alleges that she has not received lawful time-and-a-half overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per week.
“Case Managers regularly work over 40 hours per week," the complaint reads. "For example, Plaintiff currently works 40-50 hours during typical week, and, during the 2016-17 time period, she frequently worked over 50 hours per week and sometimes worked over 60 hours per week.”
The lawsuit seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages and other damages pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act and Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.
