Wage Theft and Oil Field Workers by Texas Overtime Wage Lawyers Hill Law Firm
Recently, a Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) lawsuit was filed on behalf of Eagle Ford Shale oilfield workers against their employer. The main allegation is that these employees were entitled to overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act but were not provided overtime pay. The workers were “operators” providing support services for hydraulic fracturing in the Eagle Ford Shale.
Absent a few specific exemptions, the Fair Labor Standards Act provides that covered employees must be paid overtime for any hours over 40 worked in a given week. A failure to provide overtime pay subjects an employer to an action under the FLSA.
