HOUSTON — A U.S. Lime employee alleges he is regularly required to work more than 40 hours per week without overtime pay.

Michael Ellis filed a complaint  Nov. 21 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against United States Lime and Minerals Inc., alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

According to his suit, Ellis began working as a production foreman for U.S. Lime in 2013 and was paid on a "salary basis" Nov. 1, 2017, through Oct. 18, 2019. He says he often worked more than 60 hours per week and was not paid for overtime, violating the FLSA. 

Ellis seeks unpaid overtime wages, trial by jury, interest and all other just and equitable relief. He is represented by attorneys Josef Buenker and Vijay Pattisapu of The Buenker Law Firm in Houston.
