HOUSTON — A delivery driver is suing Amazon, alleging she was not paid for overtime hours worked.
Porcha Johnson-Hassan, on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint March 28 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Chivalry Logistics LLC and Amazon.com Services Inc alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The suit says Johnson-Hassan worked as a delivery driver for Amazon from October 2018 to February 2019. She says she was paid hourly and classified as a W-2 employee.
The plaintiff alleges she was entitled to overtime pay for her hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week as required by the FLSA but she was not paid the overtime.
Johnson-Hassan seeks trial by jury, overtime compensation, liquidated damages, attorney fees, court costs and other fit relief. She represented by attorneys Robert R. Debes Jr. and Ricardo Prieto of Shellist Lazarz Slobin LLP in Houston.
