A former secretary at Drinker Biddle’s Washington office is suing the firm over an overtime pay dispute. Shawn Havrilla worked worked at the firm between 2006 and 2008. In a complaint filed last week at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia she contends that she was required to work over 40 hours a week without proper compensation. The complaint states that Drinker Biddle allegedly knew Havrilla was working these extra hours and even required them as a condition of her employment. The complaint goes on to say that the firm allegedly agreed to pay Havrilla one and a half times her hourly wage for each hour over 35 in a week.

Havrilla is represented by Arlington, Virginia based  solo practitioner Nils Peterson. Both Peterson and a spokesman for Drinker Biddle have declined to comment on the case.
