Field operator claims company failed to pay overtime
Fort Bend County, Texas resident Cedric Fuller filed a lawsuit against oilfield services company ESG USA Inc. on Thursday, October 13 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas. Fuller is claiming the company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay him overtime wages.
According to the lawsuit, Fuller worked as a field operator for the company in several states, including Texas, California, and Pennsylvania. During that time, Fuller said he was paid his hourly rate but did not receive overtime premiums when he worked in excess of 40 hours per week. ESG allegedly classified him incorrectly as exempt from overtime, so he was not paid the overtime rate of one and one-half times the regular rate of pay. Fuller wants trial by jury, unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated damages with penalty and interest, attorney fees, costs, expenses, and other relief as deemed necessary by the courts.
