HOUSTON – A former driver for a Houston company alleges that he was not paid the appropriate rate for overtime work.

Maricio Uribe filed a complaint on May 9 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Effort Enterprises of Texas Inc., doing business as Atlantic Relocation System, alleging that the former employer violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he regularly worked in excess of 40 hours per workweek without being paid overtime premiums. Instead, he alleges he was paid straight time. The plaintiff holds Effort Enterprises of Texas Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay plaintiff’s overtime hours at the rate of time-and-one-half his regular rate for all hours worked over 40 per week.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney fees and all other relief as the court deems necessary. He is represented by Shelly M. Davis-Smith of The Davis Law Firm in Houston.
