HOUSTON — An employee is suing Nationwide, alleging unpaid wages and violation of workers compensation laws.
Antonio Cole of Richmond filed a lawsuit April 6, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, alleging failure to pay overtime wages to employees.
According to the complaint, since 2010 Cole was forced to work three to four hours more per day and also a 8- to 10-hour shifts during weekends as a claims adjuster but did not receive any overtime wages for the extra hours. The plaintiff alleges Nationwide failed to compensate its employees by paying overtime for hours worked for more than 40 hours per week.
Cole seeks trial by jury, payment for all overtime wages owed, plus an equal amount as liquidated damages, all legal fees, interest at the highest rate allowed by law and any other relief the court deems just. He is represented by attorney Taft L. Foley II of The Foley Law Firm in Houston.
