An O'Hara invention promotion company and its founder have failed to pay overtime to at least 214 current and former sales representatives, the Labor Department said in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday.

The nature of Davison Design & Development's business and the kind of work performed by the sales representatives means they are covered by federal wage laws requiring the company and its founder, George M. Davison, to pay them overtime, the lawsuit says.

The agency is seeking a permanent injunction to require the company to start paying overtime as well as recovery of the employees' unpaid back wages plus an equal amount in damages.

A company spokesman declined to comment.
