TYLER — A former safety supervisor with Petro Safety Services alleges he was not compensated for time he worked more than 40 hours per week. 

Byron Prosise of Williamson County filed a complaint Nov. 15 in the Tyler Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Petro Safety Services LLC and James Lamonte, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). 

According to Prosise's complaint, during his work with Petro from June 2016 to July 2019, he worked an average of more than 100 hours per week and was never paid a "half-time premium" for his overtime work. According to the suit, he was paid $525 per day and was not in an exempt position under the FLSA. 

Prosise seeks monetary relief, interest, trial by jury and all other just relief. He is represented by attorneys Charles Scalise and Daniel Ross of the Ross Scalise Law Group in Austin.
