SHERMAN – A Dallas County man alleges that his former Denton County employer owes him unpaid wages.
Dustin Boshell filed a complaint on March 29 in the Sherman District of the Eastern District of Texas against Tips Family Enterprises LLC and Joshua Lee Tips alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff worked for the defendants as a sign installer from 2014 to March 2018. He alleges he regularly worked more than 40 hours a week during his employment.
