HOUSTON — Two Houston sushi chefs are suing Japanese restaurant operators, alleging violation of workers compensation acts in failing to pay overtime.

Juan Bahena and Santos Tahay Suy filed a complaint June 14 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Sushi Hana, Incorporated, doing business as Sushi Hana Japanese Kitchen, Lily Ng and Hui Yan, alleging they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, Bahena and Suy regularly worked more than 40 hours each week as sushi chefs for three years but were not paid one and one-half times their regular hourly rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 as required by FLSA.

Bahena and Suy seek trial by jury, unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated damages, pre- and post-judgment interest and all other equitable relief. They are represented by attorneys Mark Siurek and Patricia Haylon of Warren & Siurek LLP in Houston.
