HOUSTON – A project management company is alleged to have paid workers a day rate instead of paying for overtime work.
Leslie Doyle, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Aug. 24 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against EnSite USA Inc. alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Kentucky Wage and Hour Laws and the Ohio Minimum Fair Wage Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendant from June to August 2015. He alleges that during the course of his employment with defendant, he regularly worked at least 12 hours per day with no overtime compensation for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week.
The plaintiff holds EnSite USA Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay premium overtime wages for hours that he worked in excess of 40 hours per workweek and instead paid a day rate.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks unpaid overtime pay, liquidated damages, attorneys’ fees and costs and such other relief as the court shall deem just and proper. He is represented by Richard (Rex) J. Burch of Bruckner Burch PLLC in Houston and Joseph A. Fitapelli and Frank J. Mazzaferro of Fitapelli & Schaffer LLP in New York.
