Praxedes Wara filed a complaint on May 2 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against SavaSeniorCare LLC, citing violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between 2008 and January 2015, she worked for more than 40 hours per work week but was not paid any overtime wage.
