HOUSTON — A woman has filed a class-action lawsuit against Shipra Enterprise Inc. d/b/a Montessori School, citing alleged violation of workers compensation acts.
Shani Pease, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated filed a complaint on Jan. 10, in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Shipra Enterprise Inc. d/b/a Montessori School alleging that the employer violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she regularly worked more than 40 hours without receiving proper overtime compensation. The plaintiff holds Shipra Enterprise Inc. d/b/a Montessori School responsible because the defendant allegedly paid plaintiff straight time only, not time and a half of her regular rate for the hours he worked in excess of 40 per week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order declaring this action to proceed as a collective action, award for all unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees and costs and such other just and proper relief. He is represented by Taft L. Foley II of The Foley Law Firm in Houston.
