Engineer claims oilfield services company neglected to pay overtime
Grady County, Oklahoma resident Adam Horn filed a class action lawsuit, individually and as part of a group against oilfield industrial services company Baker Hughes Oilfield Operations, Inc. Horn claimed that the company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by refusing to pay him overtime pay for the extended hours that he worked for the firm.
According to the lawsuit, Horn has regularly worked for more than 40 hours per week without overtime pay as a mud engineer at Baker Hughes from August 2009 to November 2014. Horn further alleges that Bakers Hugh misclassified him as exempted from overtime and did not compensate him for all the times that he did overtime work by paying him at one and one-half times his regular pay rate as mandated by the FLSA.
Misclassifying a worker as exempt from overtime pay when he is not exempt is illegal.
