HOUSTON – A former driller for a Flatonia location alleges that he was not paid the correct rate for overtime work.
Guadalupe Garza, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on June 16 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Nabors Drilling Technologies USA Inc., Nabors Corporate Services Inc. and Nabors Industries Inc. alleging that they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff worked as a driller for the defendants at their Flatonia location from 2004 to 2016. He alleges that he regularly worked over 40 hours per week but was only paid straight time for the extra hours worked.
The plaintiff holds Nabors Drilling Technologies USA Inc., Nabors Corporate Services Inc. and Nabors Industries Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay the correct rate of time-and-one-half for overtime work.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order allowing this action to proceed as a collective action, award for all unpaid overtime, 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.
