HOUSTON – An Alabama couple allege they were paid the same weekly rate during their employment with an RV park regardless of the amount of hours they worked.
Alan Patton and Kimberly Patton filed a complaint on Oct. 29 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against WGB RV Parks LLC, Victor E. Vacek Jr., et al. alleging that they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they regularly worked more than 40 hours in a workweek for the defendants without receiving payment for all hours worked over 40. They allege they were paid the same rate weekly no matter of the amount of hours they worked.
The plaintiffs hold WGB RV Parks LLC, Vacek Jr., et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay them at a rate of no less than one-and-one-half times their regular rate for all hours worked over 40 each week.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek damages in an amount within the jurisdictional limits of the court, liquidated damages, with interest, attorney's fees, costs of court and such other and further relief to which they may be rightfully entitled. They are represented by Jo Miller of Law Office of Jo Miller PLLC in Conroe.
