HOUSTON – A former Millcom Cable technician alleges he often worked more than 65 hours per week without overtime pay. 

Samuel Fernandez, on behalf of himself and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint Dec. 19 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Millcom Cable Service LLC; Perfectvision Manufacturing Inc., doing business as Perfect 10; and Anthony Miller alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). 

Fernandez, who worked as an internet technician/installer for Perfect 10 from February 2017 through July 24, 2019, alleges he and other installers worked more than 40 hours per week without overtime pay. He alleges he was misclassified as an independent contractor and that the defendants also made improper deductions from his paycheck.

Fernandez alleges in his complaint that he often worked between 65 to 70 hours per week, including time attending mandatory meetings about once a month that lasted up to 3 hours, and was not paid for the additional work.

Fernandez seeks unpaid wages, a trial by jury, interest and all other just relief. He is represented by Gregg Rosenberg and Tracey Lewis of Rosenberg & Sprovach in Houston.
