SAN DIEGO – A former senior clinical research associate alleges she was not paid for overtime work.
Schoulee Cones filed a complaint on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated on Dec. 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Parexel International Corp. alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she and other employees worked more than eight hours per day without receiving overtime wages, proper meal and rest periods, and timely wages upon resignation or termination. As a result of defendant's unfair practices, she alleges she has suffered irreparable harm and damages.
The plaintiffs hold Parexel International Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to keep or provide an accurate record of its employees' hours worked and failed to compensate/provide its employees of overtime wages and proper meal/rest periods.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant, certify as a class action; injunctive relief; general, punitive, compensatory and consequential damages; interest; attorneys’ fees; expenses; costs of action; statutory penalties; and further relief as the court deems necessary. She is represented by Patrick N. Keegan and James M. Treglio of Keegan & Baker LLP in Carlsbad and Walter Haines of The United Employees Law Group in Huntington Beach.
