HOUSTON — An Oklahoma man is suing an oilfield services company, alleging violation of workers compensation acts by failing to pay overtime.
Adam Horn of Grady County, Oklahoma, filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Sept. 28 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Baker Hughes Oilfield Operations Inc., alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, while Horn was employed as a mud engineer at Baker Hughes from August 2009 to November 2014, he regularly worked more than 40 hours in a week without overtime pay.
The plaintiff alleges Baker Hughes mis-classified him as exempt from overtime and failed to compensate him for all hours worked more than 40 in per week at one and one-half times his regular rate as required by FLSA.
Horn seeks trial by jury, an order designating this case as a collective action, all unpaid overtime wages and liquidated damages, attorney fees, court costs and expenses, plus all other relief. He is represented by attorney Galvin B. Kennedy of Kennedy Hodges LLP in Houston.
