HOUSTON – Two former employees of a security services company allege they were not paid the appropriate rate for overtime work.
Kevin R. Holloman and Shanida Young, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Jan. 28 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against G4S Secure Solutions USA Inc. citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs resigned from their positions as either a bank protection officer or upscale security officer in 2018. They allege they regularly worked more than 40 hours in a workweek without being paid proper overtime compensation at one-and-one-half times their regular rate of pay for hours worked over 40 hours.
The plaintiffs hold G4S Secure Solutions USA Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay plaintiffs and the class members overtime compensation in accordance with the FLSA and allegedly also failed to pay them for time spent traveling to job sites.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek all unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, costs and such other relief as is proper and just. They are represented by Gregg M. Rosenberg and Tracey D. Lewis of Rosenberg and Sprovach in Houston.
