HOUSTON – A former salesman at an oil well company is suing his ex-employer for allegedly unpaid overtime wages.
Nathaniel Stone filed a class-action lawsuit Dec. 22 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against National Oilwell Varco LP alleging a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According the lawsuit, Stone worked as an inside sales representative, working more than 40 hours a week, and claims that he did not get paid one-and-one-half times this regularly hourly rate for every hour he worked in excess of 40 in the workweek.
