GALVESTON — A Galveston County woman is suing his former employers, alleging failure to pay proper overtime wages.

Oneyvi Reynoso filed a lawsuit July 8 in the Galveston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Rudy Betancourt Services, Inc. doing business as Black Pearl Oyster Bar & Grill and doing business as Safari Beach Company, Post Office Street Inc. doing business as The Press Box and Rudy Betancourt, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
