Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 07, 2016
A lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Texas claims that Percheron Energy, LLC, failed to pay its landmen overtime wages in accordance with the Fair Labor Standard Act (“FLSA”). The lawsuit filed by Bohrer Brady, LLC, entitled Fletcher v. Percheron Energy, LLC, Case No. 4:16-cv-02564 (S.D. Tex), alleges that Percheron Energy, LLC misclassified Petroleum Landmen as “independent contractors” in an attempt to avoid paying its employees overtime wages.
Fletcher, the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit and a former landman with Percheron Energy, LLC, filed suit seeking to recover unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages and attorney’s fees for all Petroleum Landmen who were classified as independent contractors within the past three (3) years. The lawsuit alleges that the Landmen routinely worked in excess of forty (40) hours in a workweek without overtime compensation. The lawsuit alleges that the practice of misclassifying employees and not paying overtime compensation violates the FLSA which entitles the workers to unpaid wages, liquidated damages and attorney’s fees.
