HOUSTON – A Fort Bend County nurse alleges she is owed unpaid wages from her former employer.
Kendra Sayles filed a complaint on May 9 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Maxim Healthcare Services alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendant from May 2015 to March 2018 as a pediatric nurse. She alleges that during some or all of the workweeks of her tenure with the defendant, she worked more 40 hours per week without receiving overtime premium for the extra hours worked.
The plaintiff holds Maxim Healthcare Services responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to compensate plaintiff at a rate of one-and-one-half times her regular rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 per week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid wages and overtime compensation, liquidated damages, attorney's fees, costs and all other relief that are just and proper. She is represented by Charles L. Scalise and Daniel B. Ross of Ross Law Group in Austin.
