Texas employers sued for not giving overtime pay to workers
A class action complaint was recently filed by a man against his two employers due suspicion that he and other workers were not given their appropriate overtime pay, an SE Texas Record article reported on January 5.
According to reports, Michael Martin had filed the complaint in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas on behalf of the current and former employees of Technip USA, Inc., and NES Global LLC. Martin, who works for the two companies as a piping engineer, alleged that his employers did not pay him overtime pay for the excess hours that he consistently worked in a usual given week. The companies have been suspected of violating the Fair Labor Standards Act. A trial by jury is being sought by Martin, so he can possibly recover all the wages he lost during and after employment, which includes expenses incurred during legal procedures.
