CHICAGO — A former employee has filed a class action lawsuit against Camping World Inc., citing alleged unpaid wages and violation of Workers' Compensation acts.
Lori LeClaire filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on March 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging the employer failed to provide adequate compensation to the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, LeClaire alleges that she worked more than 40 hours without being compensated for overtime. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible because it allegedly failed to pay overtime wages to the plaintiff, instead paying certain employees base salaries.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid back wages, liquidated damages, court costs, unpaid benefits, interest and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Michael A. Josephson and Jessica M. Bresler of Fibich, Leebron, Copeland, Briggs & Josephson in Houston and attorneys from Werman Salas PC in Chicago.
