HOUSTON — A Texas woman is suing a debt collection business, alleging it failed to pay overtime.
Rachel Zeno, individually and on behalf of all other similarly situated, filed a lawsuit April 27, in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against
RP Field Services LLC and National Creditors Connection Inc.,
alleging they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to fairly compensate employees.
According to the complaint, between July 17, 2015, and April 2016, Zeno worked for more than 40 hours per week as a field representative for the defendants but was not paid any overtime. The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to pay their employees overtime wages of time and a half as defined by the FLSA.
Zeno seeks a trial by jury and all damages, unpaid overtime, liquidated damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorneys Philip Bohrer and Scott E. Brady of Bohrer Brady LLC in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
