HOUSTON — A Harris County woman filed a class action lawsuit against Amazon, alleging she was not paid for the hours worked overtime.
Aubrey Polk, on behalf of herself and other similarly situated, filed a complaint March 28 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Hass Interests LLC, doing business as Texas Executive Couriers, and Amazon.com Services Inc., alleging failure to pay overtime wages in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Polk says she worked for the defendant as as a delivery driver from May 2018 to February 2019. The suit says Polk often worked overtime, in excess of 40 hours per week. The defendant, however, failed to pay the plaintiff for the extra hours worked as required by FLSA.
Polk seeks trial by jury, compensation for overtime hours worked, liquidated damages, attorney fees, court costs and other relief deemed fit. She is represented by attorneys Robert R. Debes Jr. andf Ricardo Prieto of Shellist, Lazarz Slobin LLP in Houston.
