GALVESTON – A Freeport man formerly employed as a craftsman alleges that he was not paid overtime wages.
William Candelaria, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Sept. 22 in the Galveston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Infinity Maintenance Services LP alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendant from April 2013 to January 2017. He alleges that he regularly worked for more than 40 hours per week without receiving overtime compensation at a rate of time-and-a-half of his regular rate of pay.
The plaintiff holds Infinity Maintenance Services LP responsible because the defendant allegedly classified plaintiff and class members as non-exempt employees.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order certifying this case as a collective action, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees and costs and such other appropriate relief. He is represented by Charles W. Branham III of Dean Omar Branham LLP in Dallas and Jason T. Brown and Nicholas Conlon of JTB Law Group LLC in Jersey City, New Jersey.
