LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - Six former employees of a Lewiston-based marketing company have sued, saying they were not paid as much as they should have been.

According to the lawsuit filed against Argo Marketing Group, the company did not pay employees for preparation time spent at work before they could communicate with customers on behalf of the company, training activities, bathroom breaks and two rest periods. The employees worked at company call centers in Portland and Pittsfield.

They are suing under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the Maine Employment Practices Act and Maine Minimum Wage and Overtime Law.

Argo CEO Jason Levesque tells the Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/1MbutjV ) that “five or six disgruntled employees out of 500 are looking at making something up,” and denied the allegations.
