SHERMAN — Hourly paid employees have filed a class-action lawsuit against their employer, citing alleged violation of workers compensation acts.
Edwin F. Zamora, Edwin A. Zamora, Santiago Vegas, Jose Gonzalez, Luis Maldonado and Maria Carachure, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint June 5 in the Sherman District of the Eastern District of Texas against Greencleaning Enterprises Inc., doing business as ServiceMaster Clean; Eagle Maintenance Co., doing business as, ServiceMaster Clean; and NKNB LP, doing business as North American Stone Co., alleging they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they regularly worked 80 or more hours per week without receiving overtime compensation. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because they allegedly paid the plaintiffs straight time for each hour they worked, regardless of whether those hours exceeded 40 in a workweek.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek all unpaid minimum wages and overtime compensation, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees and costs and all other legal or equitable relief. They are represented by Matthew R. Scott and Javier Perez of Scott Perez LLP in Dallas.
