Engineer suing his employers for depriving him of his overtime pay
Posted on Sunday, January 15th, 2017
A piping engineer from Harris County, Texas had initiated a class action lawsuit against two companies due to allegations that they have been denied the overtime pay that they deserve, a January 5 article of SE Texas Record reported.
On behalf of current and previous employees, Michael Martin reportedly filed a class action suit against Technip USA, Inc., and NES Global LLC due to complaints that their workers’ compensation rights have been violated. Documents revealed that Martin had not been paid his overtime pay, though he used to regularly work more than the usual 40-hour per week schedule. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to give overtime pay to workers who have been on the job for more than 40 hours in a week. Martin is looking to recover all the finances he thinks he deserves, which includes all legal costs obtained while pursuing a jury trial.
