HOUSTON – A Houston man alleges his former employer owes him for unpaid overtime compensation.
Marcus Chassion filed a complaint on July 10 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Brooklyn Sweeps Inc. and Christopher M. Adams alleging unpaid overtime compensation and violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The plaintiff alleges he was employed by Brooklyn Sweeps from April 2017 to May 2019 and was routinely asked to work for more than 40 hours a week. He alleges he was not compensated for any hours worked over 40 per week at a rate of time-and-a-half of his regular rate. Instead, he alleges the company would only pay the overtime rate for hours worked beyond 60 per week.
The plaintiff is seeking unpaid overtime compensation, attorneys' fees, costs, interest and other relief deemed fit. The plaintiff is represented by Mark Siurek in Houston.
