ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis resident and former employee of Fenstar-Martens Holding Company, d/b/a Enterprise Medical Recruiting and/or Enterprise Medical Services, is suing the company and Neal Fenstar, citing alleged violation of workers' compensation acts, including the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Danielle Bernholt filed a complaint on Jan. 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri against the Chesterfield-based company, alleging that it failed to provide employees their rights to proper wages and benefits.
According to the complaint, Bernholt says that she suffered damages from lost earnings from consistently working over 40 hours per week as a medical recruiter for the defendants. In the complaint, she states that she was not paid proper overtime wages and was encouraged by Fenstar-Martens Holding Company and Fenstar to work as many hours as possible, including evenings and weekends. She also states in the complaint that she earned commissions that were not paid to her.
Bernholt holds Fenstar-Martens Holding Company and Fenstar responsible because they allegedly failed to pay overtime wages, declined to pay all commissions she earned and didn't uphold the provisions of the FLSA.
Bernholt requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, attorneys' fees, costs, expenses, interest and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Russell C. Riggan and Samuel W. Moore of Riggan Law Firm LLC in Kirkwood.
