MARSHALL —A Texas man has filed a class-action lawsuit against Eze Truck Holdings Inc. and Patterson Truck & Crane, citing alleged unpaid wages.
Richard Garner filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on March 17, in the Marshall Division of the Southern District of Texas against Eze Truck Holdings Inc. and Patterson Motor Freight Inc., doing business as Patterson Truck & Crane, alleging that they wrongfully failed to properly compensate their employees by paying them over time wages.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours per week and did not receive any overtime wages during his employment. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendant allegedly paid their employees on a salary basis regardless of the total number of hours they worked.
The plaintiff seeks compensation for all damages, unpaid overtime wages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just and proper. He is represented by William S. Hommel Jr. of Hommel Law Firm in Tyler.
