HOUSTON – An employee has filed a class-action lawsuit against a Houston employer alleging he was wrongfully terminated and not paid overtime wages.
Tim Summers filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on June 3 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Rick's Front Door Refinishing LLC alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between April 11, 2012, and April 9, he worked for more than 40 hours per week but was not paid any overtime wages. The plaintiff holds Rick's Front Door Refinishing LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay its employees any overtime compensation in violation of the FLSA. He also alleges that he was wrongfully terminated after complaining of not receiving overtime wages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all unpaid overtime wages plus liquidated damages in an equal amount, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Joe Williams of The Law Offices of Joe M. Williams & Associates PLLC in Houston.
