PARKERSBURG -- A woman claims her former employer failed to pay her overtime.
Judith Dalton filed her lawsuit Jan. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, naming Parkersburg-based Winans Sanitary Supply Co., James F. Winans III and Joseph Winans as the defendants.
According to Dalton, she was employed by the defendants at Winans before she was forced out. Dalton claims she started working at Winans in October of 2011 and was paid on a hourly basis. Dalton goes on to say she worked more than 40 hours a week, but Winans failed to compensate her the overtime.
Dalton allegedly told the defendants she was not being adequately compensated for her overtime. She says she was treated poorly after complaining and was eventually forced to quit.
Dalton maintains the defendants' actions violate the Fair Labor Standards Act. She is seeking an undisclosed amount in damages and is being represented by attorney Mark Goldner.U.S. District Court for the Southern District of W. Va. Case No. 2:14-1392.
