HUNTINGTON – A woman is suing Coralicious Incorporated after she claims it violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Lewis Rhinhart was also named as a defendant in the suit.
Cynthia D. Norosky was paid a salary and was treated by the defendants as exempt from the minimum wage/maximum hour provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, according to a complaint filed April 10 in Fayette Circuit Court and removed to federal court on April 30.
Norosky claims the defendant failed to pay her a salary sufficient to meet the salary basis test for that exemption.
The defendants paid Norosky a salary during part of 2015 and throughout 2016 of $250 per week, according to the suit.
Norosky claims throughout her employment, the defendants wholly failed in their obligation to document and to retain records of hours she worked and, despite the defendants’ failure, she was capable of producing credible evidence supporting her estimates of hours worked.
Throughout her employment, Norosky regularly worked in excess of 40 hours per week, according to the suit.
Norosky is seeking unpaid wages and liquidated damages. She is represented by Mark A. Toor.
The defendants are represented by Ashley W. French of Cipriani & Werner.
