HOUSTON — An employee is suing 7-Eleven, Inc., alleging unpaid wages.
Mechelle Robinson of Brazos County filed a complaint March 28 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against 7-Eleven, Inc. alleging the employer wrongfully failed to fairly compensate their employees by paying a minimum wage as well as paying overtime wages.
According to the complaint, between August 2014 and Oct. 31, 2015, Robinson worked more than 40 hours per week but did not receive any overtime pay nor was she permitted to any breaks during her employment. The plaintiff alleges 7-Eleven failed to pay plaintiff minimum wage and any overtime pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week.
Robinson seeks trial by jury, all damages, unpaid back wages at the applicable overtime rate, liquidated damages, plus interest at the applicable rate, all legal fees, and any other relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorneys Thomas H. Padgett, Jr., Charles L. Scalise and Daniel B. Ross of Ross Law Group in Bellaire.
