ST. LOUIS — Trustees of a labor group are suing a construction company, citing alleged violation of workers' compensation acts.
Greater St. Louis Construction Laborers Welfare Fund, Brandon Flinn, Danny Jenkins, et al. filed a complaint July 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri Eastern Division against A.L.L. Construction LLC alleging the defendant violated the Employee Retirement Income Security (ERISA).
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that as the defendant's employees bound by the collective-bargaining agreement, they failed to receive accurate and timely monthly reports to the employee benefit funds with specified amounts and failed to be permitted to examine the defendant's books and records to easily determine the amount of contributions owed.
The plaintiffs hold A.L.L. Construction responsible because the defendant has allegedly failed and refused to submit monthly report forms since March 1.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek for an interlocutory order to submit reports and audit, award for interest, liquidated damages, costs, accounting fees, attorneys' fees, and for such and further relief as the Court may consider appropriate. They are represented by Sherrie A. Hall of Hammond and Shinners PC in St. Louis.
