Ronald Byland and Fany Hernandez filed a lawsuit against Superior Hospitality Systems Inc. in the Orleans Parish Central District Court on Feb. 5.
Byland claims he has not been paid wages for one week's worth of work he did before resigning and is entitled to a total of $21,600 by virtue of Louisiana’s Wage Payment statute.

The defendant is accused of unlawfully docking wages and failing to relinquish wages for plaintiffs in a timely fashion.
Plaintiffs are seeking the aforementioned amounts plus attorney fees.

This case has been assigned to Division J Judge Paula A. Brown.
