HOUSTON — A League City production clerk is suing a court reporting business, alleging violation of workers compensation acts in failing to pay overtime.
Ruth Burleigh filed a complaint March 27 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Ross Reporting Services Inc., alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, between July 2014 and Oct. 11, 2016, Burleigh arrived to work daily at approximately 7:30 a.m., took one hour lunch and left work at 5 p.m. Burleigh alleges she worked about 42.5 hours per week but was only compensated for 40 hours.
The plaintiff alleges Ross Reporting failed to compensate her at a rate not less than one and one-half time her regular rate of pay for each hour worked in excess of 40 hours in a week as required by FLSA.
Burleigh seeks trial by jury, unpaid overtime wages, damages, pre-judgment interest, attorney fees, court costs and all other proper relief. She is represented by attorneys Brett C. Beeler and Charles L. Scalise of Ross Law Group in Austin.
