HOUSTON – The law firm Young & Newsom, P.C. in Amarillo has filed a federal unpaid wages lawsuit against a local adult entertainment club.
The suit’s four plaintiffs – Perry Stevenson, Courtney Budimlija, Robert E. Field, Jr. and Richard Morris – allege that Embassy, Inc., doing business as Houston Dolls Cabaret, and others refused to compensate them “at the applicable minimum wage and overtime rates of pay required by federal law.”
According to court documents filed on Dec. 26, 2018 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas, the complainants earned “typically $75 to $100 for each shift worked, regardless of the number of hours worked per workweek and even if the plaintiffs’ regular rate of pay fell below the minimum wage.”
“The plaintiffs were not paid on a salary basis,” the original petition says.
Consequently, the complainants seek unspecified monetary damages.
