Former field clerks allege Wood Group USA did not pay overtime wages

By Kristine Gonzales-Abella | Nov 9, 2018

HOUSTON – Individuals residing in Michigan and Louisiana allege a Houston-headquartered company failed to pay them for their overtime work.

Deborah Keyes and Rebecca Robbins filed a complaint on Oct. 22 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Wood Group USA Inc., formerly known as Wood Group Mustang Inc., alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs formerly were employed by the defendant as field clerks and paid a day rate. They allege they estimate they worked 84 to 98 hours a week and were not paid overtime compensation for the hours worked over 40 per week.

The plaintiffs hold Wood Group USA Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain accurate time records and failed to pay them at a rate of time-and-one-half of their regular wage rate for overtime work.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek back pay damages, prejudgment interest, liquidated damages, litigation costs, expenses, attorneys’ fees and such other and further relief as this court deems just and proper. They are represented by Shanon J. Carson, Sarah R. Schalman-Bergen and Alexandra K. Piazza of Berger Montague PC in Philadelphia.
