HOUSTON — A former exterminator for Bugs Inc., claims he worked 10-hour shifts without overtime pay and was fired for leaving work early to pick up his wife from the hospital. 

Erich Kaiser on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated filed a complaint Feb. 11 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Bugs Inc., Anita Mancini and Gary Mancini alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. 

Kaiser worked for Bugs Inc., from July of 2012 until Feb. 7 as an exterminator. He alleges that he and other employees worked for a flat, weekly amount without overtime pay. Kaiser claims he worked ten-hour shifts Monday through Friday and eight-hour shifts on two or three Saturdays each month without overtime pay. Kaiser also alleges that he had his pay reduced several times due to being sick and was eventually terminated for leaving early to pick up his injured wife at the hospital. 

Kaiser and the class seek monetary relief, trial by jury and all other just relief. They are represented by Beatriz-Sosa Morris and John Neuman of Sosa-Morris Neuman in Houston.
