Myrtle Beach developer, company face lawsuit

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A man who worked as an attendant at a Myrtle Beach area golf course has sued developer Burroughs & Chapin and a golf course company, saying he was not paid minimum wage or overtime.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported that Alan Dutil filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Florence.

It accuses Burroughs & Chapin and National Golf Management LLC with the violations. Dutil says he was forced to work for $5.80 an hour, less than the $7.25 per hour minimum wage. Dutil also says he was denied overtime even though he regularly worked 50 or more hours a week.

A spokeswoman for Burroughs & Chapin says the company does not talk about pending litigation. There was no response to the lawsuit from National Golf Management.
