Feldes, Charles P. Clayton, Stoney Courville and Lori Morrison alleging that the employers violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by Coastal Staffing for 10 days in September for temporary disaster cleanup after Hurricane Harvey. She alleges that she worked for 12 or more hours per day, seven days per week without receiving regular and overtime wages for all hours worked in excess of 40 per week.
