HOUSTON – A Dallas County woman alleges an insurance carrier claims processing company failed to pay for overtime work.
Tameika Price, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on July 20 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Pilot Catastrophe Services Inc. alleging violation the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendant in September 2017 as an adjuster and was paid on a day-rate basis. The suit states she was given the title of adjuster but really performed the duties of an inspector. She alleges that she regularly worked more than 40 hours per week without receiving proper overtime compensation.
The plaintiff holds Pilot Catastrophe Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain accurate time and pay records and failed to pay her at a rate of time-and-one-half of her regular rate of pay for overtime hours worked.
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 compensation, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees and costs, with interest and such other and further relief justly entitled. She is represented by Melissa Moore, Curt Hesse and Bridget Davidson of Moore & Associates in Houston.
