SHERMAN — An employee is suing Crossmark, alleging unpaid wages and violation of workers compensation laws.
Irvin Howard, a retail executive from California, filed a lawsuit April 12, in the Sherman District of the Eastern District of Texas against Crossmark Inc. alleging failure to fairly compensate employees by paying overtime wages at the correct rate established by the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, between October 2010 and November 2014, Howard worked more than 40 hours, often up to 50 hours, and did not receive any overtime wages at the appropriate rate established by the FLSA. The plaintiff alleges Crossmark failed to pay employees the minimum rate, according to FLSA, or for hours worked of more than 40 hours per week.
Howard seeks a trial by jury, all unpaid wages, liquidated damages equal to the unpaid overtime wage, interest, all legal fees and any other relief the court deems just. He is represented by attorneys Charles W Branham III and Corinna Pia Chandler of Dean Omar & Branham LLP in Dallas, and Jason T. Brown of JTB Law Group LLC in Jersey City, New Jersey.
