HOUSTON – A former Waller County Asphalt worker alleges he worked between 50 to 80 hours per week without overtime compensation and was fired after developing an illness.

Scott Chamberlain filed a complaint Dec. 19 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Waller County Asphalt Inc. and Waller County Construction LLC alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. 

Chamberlain alleges he worked for the defendant mixing and laying asphalt, making deliveries to customers and even driving a bus for "defendants' personal excursions." 

He alleges in his suit that he consistently worked more than 40 hours per week and was not paid for overtime work. Chamberlin also claims he was fired in July after he missed work to treat pneumonia he alleges was caused by asphalt dust and chemicals. 

Chamberlain seeks unpaid overtime, a trial by jury, interest and all other just relief. He is represented by Nicholas Lawson of McDowell Hetherington LLP in Houston.
