Several employees are suing the oilfield services company Halliburton, alleging unpaid overtime.
William Barham III, individually and for all others similarly situated, Dustin Cochran, Patrick Jones, Carlos Saavedra and Tyler Wasaff filed a lawsuit Oct. 23 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Halliburton Energy Services, alleging unpaid overtime wages in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, Halliburton employed the plaintiffs as data acquisition specialists, technical professionals, or service operators up until March. The plaintiffs were paid on a salary basis and regularly worked more than 40 hours per week, the suit says.
The lawsuit alleges Halliburton did not pay the plaintiffs an overtime premium for time worked more than 40 hours per week, and did not maintain accurate time and pay records.
The plaintiffs and others in the class seek to recover unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, attorney fees and costs. They are represented by attorneys Melissa Moore and Curt Hesse of Moore & Associates in Houston.
