Below is the first part of article by Ivan Penn from tampabay.com. It reads…
A former Duke Energy Florida employee wants a Pinellas County Circuit Court judge to approve a class action case against the utility for allegedly failing to pay overtime to hourly workers.
The lawsuit was filed by Janet Farnham, who was hired to work for the utility from January 2012 to April 2014 through Allied Staff Augumentation Partners Inc., a Charlotte, N.C. base firm.
Farnham alleges Duke and Allied Staff, which also is named as a defendant in the suit, “had a policy and practice of requiring (Farnham) and similarly situated employees to work in excess of forty (40) hours each work week without paying them wages and/or overtime compensation as required by the (Fair Labor Standards Act of 1928).”
