HOUSTON —A field technician is suing an oilfield service company over claims of unpaid overtime wages.
Ricky Ducote, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a collective action complaint on Sept. 3 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Tubular Solutions Inc., alleging the company failed to pay overtime wages in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
