Lab Worker Claims Employer Violated Wage Laws

An employee of Med Fusion (Lewisville, Texas) filed a lawsuit against the company Nov. 7 in the Eastern District of Texas, Sherman Division, claiming he was fired for complaining about the company violating federal wage laws.

According a report in the Southeast Texas Legal Journal, Bradley Pruden was hired by Med Fusion for the position of field service specialist in March. Pruden claims that Med Fusion reduced his paycheck in June without prior notification. Pruden spoke to the human resources department and sent a written notice that he believed the defendant’s action was contrary to law.

Pruden was successful at obtaining his missing wages. However, he stated that Med Fusion began to systematically retaliate against him for reporting his good-faith belief of being incorrectly paid under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Med Fusion is also accused of withholding a commission check from Pruden and creating a hostile work environment. Pruden was terminated on June 21, 2012, allegedly for his performance.

The lawsuit claims that Med Fusion violated the Fair Labor Standards Act, deliberately retaliated against Pruden, and wrongfully discharged him. Pruden is seeking an award of damages for mental anguish, emotional distress, lost wages, employee benefits, loss of wages capacity, attorneys’ fees, exemplary damages, interest, and court costs.
