Four Seasons Packaging Corp. and five individuals with control of the business are facing a former supply packer's proposed collective action that alleges the defendants failed to pay their distribution center employees proper minimum and overtime wages.
Four Seasons Packaging Corp. and five individuals with control of the business are facing a former employee’s proposed collective action that alleges violations of state and federal labor law. The plaintiff says she was employed as a supply packer at the defendants’ distribution center and worked between 42 and 50 hours per week throughout her employment. According to the case, her fixed weekly pay, when divided by her hours worked, consistently fell below the minimum wage and didn’t include premium time-and-a-half overtime wages. Even further, the plaintiff claims the defendants made improper deductions from her pay, including $6.00 per week for “meals she never ate,” and didn’t reimburse her for purchasing gloves and office supplies required to perform her job.
The lawsuit also alleges the defendants failed to post required wage notices or provide employees with accurate wage statements in accordance with state law.
