HOUSTON — A former employee is suing a Texas telecom business, alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act regarding unpaid overtime work.

Earl Hicks filed a lawsuit on Feb. 10 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Consolidated Telecom Services Inc., seeking compensation for extra work. 

According to the complaint, Hicks worked for Consolidated Telecom Services since October 2013 and his duties included requesting proposals for projects, closing out customer documentations and installing microwaves, among other tasks. Hicks worked in excess of 40 hours per week and sometimes regularly worked 60 hours and 70 hours per week, the suit states.

The lawsuit states Consolidated Telecom benefited from the plaintiff's overtime work, did not make a good faith effort to comply with the overtime sections in the FLSA and the actions were in blatant disregard for Hicks' federally protected rights.

Hicks demands a jury trial, an equal amount to the overtime wages, judgment against Consolidated Telecom Services, plus all court costs and attorney fees. He is represented by attorney Josef F. Buenker of Houston.
