BATON ROUGE, LA (PRWEB) October 01, 2015
A federal class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of two former extradition agents against Texas Prisoner Transportation Division, LLC (“TPTD”), alleging the company failed to pay federally mandated overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek. The extradition agents, through their attorneys at Bohrer Brady, LLC, brought the case on behalf of employees across the country who were paid a day rate by their employer, Texas Prisoner Transportation Division. They seek to recover overtime wages and double damages for themselves and other similarly situated employees.
TPTD is an extradition company that boasts being the “fastest growing prisoner transportation company in the United States.” TPTD, based out of Thrall, Texas, transports prisoners of all security levels throughout the country for various law enforcement agencies. Plaintiffs in the lawsuit allege they were not properly paid under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) for their work time while making these trips.
The FLSA requires most employers in the United States to pay non-exempt employees overtime pay at one and one-half times the regular pay rate for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. The lawsuit alleges the prisoner transport specialists are entitled to overtime.
Plaintiffs are represented by Philip Bohrer and Scott Brady from Bohrer Brady, LLC, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The case is entitled Kline v. Texas Prisoner Transportation Division, LLC, No. 1:15-cv-00857 (W.D. Tx.).
