TYLER — A Gregg County man is suing multiple employers, alleging failure to pay overtime in violation of workers compensation acts.
Ryan McNeal filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Aug. 25, in the Tyler Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Markum Enterprises LLC, doing business as Floor Removal King and Flood Out Restoration, McWhiney & Markum LLC, doing business as Floor Removal King and Flood Out Restoration and Wesley G. Markum, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, from February 2016 to the present, McNeal performed general labor for the defendants, working more than 40 hours in at least one week without overtime compensation.
