Court docs: fast food worker erroneously paid $28K, refuses to remit funds to Popeyes

By John Suayan | Jan 9, 2019

HOUSTON – A state district lawsuit accuses a fast food employee of failing to pay his employer wages he was erroneously paid.

Houston Fast Foods, Inc. is suing Jason Perez, who it employs at one of its Popeyes eateries, in the Harris County 133rd District Court.

According to the plaintiff, it “inadvertently paid (Perez) at a significantly higher hourly rate, $85.00 an hour,” instead of the agreed upon rate of $8.50 per hour. The defendant allegedly received seven payments without notifying the company of the error.

Court documents assert that Perez was paid $28,847.19. He acknowledged knowingly receiving the overpayment of wages and agreed in writing to pay the remaining balance, the original petition says.

HFFI claims that the respondent, however, “ceased to make further payments” and “refused to cooperate with respect to resolving the dispute.”

The law firm Monty & Ramirez LLP in Houston is representing the plaintiff.
