Oil Field Workers Sue For Unpaid Overtime

Recently  a former project lead filed a lawsuit in the Southern District Court of Texas seeking overtime pay from ConocoPhillips and ConocoPhillips. He brought the case on behalf of himself and  other  project leads nationwide who were paid a day rate with no additional overtime pay. The lawsuit claimed  unlawfull  classification  of  workers as independent contractors, and failed to pay them an overtime premium in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The lawsuit seeks overtime pay, plus double damages.

A federal study shows  that an estimated 3.4 million employees are classified as independent contractors when they should be reported as employees.

Have you been classified as and independent contractor?  This is one of the ways employers try to get out of paying you overtime pay. Very often this classification is incorrect and you are actually entitled to overtime pay. Worker misclassification continues to mount in Texas.

Misclassifying Employees

(FLSA)  law states  that non-exempt employees in get  paid overtime pay for all hours worked over 40 hours a week. Certain employees are exempt from these requirements.

Exempt employees are typically employed as executive, professional, administrative, and outside sales employees.  Job titles have been used by employers to get  exempt status. Employees must meet certain tests regarding their job duties under both federal and state employment law to be considered exempt.

A Way To Cheat  You Out Of Overtime Pay

Misclassifying employees as independent contractors is one of the tricks employers use to get out of paying you overtime pay.
Employers will  incorrectly classify workers as independent contractors rather than employees.   This results in workers having the  rights of  employees entitled under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

People Are Sueing Employers For Unpaid Overtime

Unpaid Overtime Is On The Rise

People in Florida, Illinois, and New Mexico are hiring lawyers to get paid their fair overtime pay.

Overtime pay is the right of all employees,  covered under by state and federal overtime laws. This  federal overtime law is called   the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Employers frequently have  different schemes to avoid paying you your hard  earned overtime pay.

Did your employer claim that because you are   paid a salary, you are not entitled to overtime pay? Did your employer failing to count all work time in computing your  overtime pay? Did they leave out travel time between jobs ? time spent performing pre-shift or post-shift duties; or by requiring employees to work “off the clock;”
Did they use  time clocks that “round down” time in 15 minute increments?  Did they give you a title such as “assistant manager” in order to claim that they are exempt?
Did they pay you cash at their straight-time hourly rate for all hours worked over 40 in individual work-weeks?
Did they Use  averaging techniques to avoid paying correct overtime wages? Did they pay  hours every two weeks as opposed to 40 hours in an individual work-week?
Did they exclude  bonus and commission payments, thereby resulting in the employer paying the employee overtime wages based on an incorrectly low regular rate of pay?

If you answered yes to any of these questions you are not alone. Thousands of workers in Chicago, Albuquerque and Miami are being robbed of their overtime pay on a daily basis.

Do not be a victim of wage theft.

Department Of Labor Unpaid Overtime News Release

Overtime Lawyer James Loren

Keeps You Updated On The Latest Unpaid Overtime News

 

We have just found out that LinkedIn has paid  nearly $6M in unpaid overtime wages and damages
to 359 employees following a US Labor Department investigation.

LinkedIn Corp. has paid $3,346,195 in overtime back wages and $2,509,646 in liquidated damages to 359 former and current employees working at company branches in California, Illinois, Nebraska and New York. An investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division found that LinkedIn was in violation of the overtime and record-keeping provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. When notified of the violations, LinkedIn agreed to pay all the overtime back wages due and take proactive steps to prevent repeat violations.

“This company has shown a great deal of integrity by fully cooperating with investigators and stepping up to the plate without hesitation to help make workers whole,” said Dr. David Weil, administrator of the Wage and Hour Division. “We are particularly pleased that LinkedIn also has committed to take positive and practical steps towards securing future compliance.”

LinkedIn failed to record, account and pay for all hours worked in a workweek, investigators found. In addition to paying back wages and liquidated damages, LinkedIn entered into an enhanced compliance agreement with the department that includes agreeing to: provide compliance training and distribute its policy prohibiting off-the-clock work to all nonexempt employees and their managers; meet with managers of current affected employees to remind them that overtime work must be recorded and paid for; and remind employees of LinkedIn’s policy prohibiting retaliation against any employee who raises concerns about workplace issues.

“Off the clock’ hours are all too common for the American worker. This practice harms workers, denies them the wages they have rightfully earned and takes away time with families,” said Susana Blanco, district director for the division in San Francisco. “We urge all employers, large and small, to review their pay practices to ensure employees know their basic workplace rights and that the commitment to compliance works through all levels of the organization. The department is committed to protecting the rights of workers and leveling the playing field for all law-abiding employers.”

The FLSA requires that covered, nonexempt employees be paid at least the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour for all hours worked, plus time and one-half their regular hourly rates for hours worked beyond 40 per week. The FLSA provides that employers who violate the law are, as a general rule, liable to employees for their back wages and an equal amount in liquidated damages. Liquidated damages are paid directly to the affected employees. Additionally, the law requires employers to maintain accurate time and payroll records, and it prohibits retaliation against employees who exercise their rights under the law.
