Posted on Thursday, November 10th, 2016
A class-action lawsuit was filed by two employees against three companies in Galveston, Texas alleging they violated laws regulating workers’ compensation, a November 7 article of SE Texas Record stated.
According to reports, plaintiffs Jesus Alberto Joya and Mauricio Espinal Canales claimed in their lawsuit their employers have not given the amount of overtime pay entitled to them. The two employees identified SKF Interest, Inc., F&F Interests, Inc., and Gary Farine as defendants. Reports revealed the two drivers regularly work more than 40 hours in a single week. A trial by jury is being sought by the plaintiffs and they are attempting to recover the total amount due to them, including expenses incurred in the trial.
