FRESNO – A Fresno County woman alleges she is still owed wages from her former employer.
Lauren Mathein filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Jan. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against
Pier 1 Imports Inc.; Pier 1 Imports (U.S.) Inc. and Does 1 through 10
alleging violation of labor codes, unlawful business practices and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between September 2014 and August 2015, she was not paid all of her earned wages at the legal rate at the end of her employment. The plaintiff holds Pier 1 Imports Inc.; Pier 1 Imports (U.S.) Inc. and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly did not provide itemized pay statements, failed to record all time worked and other counts.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, economic and special damages, all unpaid wages plus liquidated damages, permanent injunction against the defendants and restitution, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Stanley D. Saltzman of Marlin & Saltzman LLP in Agoura Hills.
