Lawsuits

By Carrie Bradon | Jul 11, 2019


HOUSTON — A field service technician is suing his former employer, alleging he was not paid the appropriate amount for working overtime hours. 

Sergio Torres, on behalf of himself and others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint July 2 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Oprona Inc., doing business as Rosen USA, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, Torres worked for Rosen USA as a field service technician between April 20, 2015 and Oct. 20, 2017. The suit alleges the defendant misclassified Torres as being exempt from overtime compensation despite regularly requiring him to work more than 40 hours a week. The plaintiff alleges there were other individuals employed by Rosen USA who were given the same treatment and not properly compensated for the overtime hours they worked as required by FLSA.

Torres seeks trial by jury, unpaid wages, overtime compensation, liquidated damages, attorney fees, costs and all other proper and just relief. He is represented by attorneys Gregg M. Rosenberg and Tracey D. Lewis of Rosenberg & Sprovach in Houston.
