HOUSTON – A 20-year employee of a Texas mobile car care business alleges he worked more than 60 hours per week without overtime pay in violation of federal law.
Samir Najjarin filed a complaint Dec. 19 against Fountainview Mobil Car Care Inc. and Samih Nimri alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Najjarin worked for Fountainview for approximately 20 years, first as a mechanic and then as an operations manager, according to his complaint. He alleges that until August of 2019, he worked six days a week and often put in more than 60 hours per week and only received a "day-rate" pay and was not compensated for overtime.
Najjarin seeks an amount equal to his unpaid overtime wages, a trial by jury, interest and all other just relief. He is represented by Josef Buenker of The Buenker Law Firm in Houston.
