HOUSTON – A chemist is suing his former employer over allegations he wasn't paid overtime wages during his employment.
Daniel Rossley filed a complaint on June 8 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Inspectorate America Corp. alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between June 3, 2014, and Nov. 11, 2015, he worked for more than 40 hours per workweek for the defendant without receiving any overtime wages. The plaintiff holds Inspectorate America Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay overtime compensation to plaintiff for all his hours worked more than 40 hours. He also alleges he was terminated when complaining about not receiving overtime.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages equal to the unpaid overtime wages, compensatory damages, punitive damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Andrew S. Golub of Dow Golub Remels & Beverly LLP in Houston.
