Texas Overtime Compensation Lawsuit
About the Texas Overtime Compensation Lawsuit
Human rights and logic tells that whatever effort produced or render must be compensated with enough money or salary as stated in the contract. One of the actions that people take whenever they are in the mood to work, or when they would like to earn more, would be to take the overtime. Overtime occurs among different companies today and there may also be different versions of overtime. Just what the name implies, overtime is acted upon by working more than the time allotted than the usual working hours or days.
In other states or countries and profession overtime may also mean having more than clients than the allotted number such as three clients for example. Exceeding the number of clients or patients for health care workers also mean over time as well. When it comes to overtime, it is essential for you to know the policies of your company when it comes to working more. Certain companies don’t pay overtime hours but most of the time employees must also pay for overtime hours. At certain laws and Federal rules as well, employees are entitled to overtime pay if they don’t fall under the administrative, professional or executive categories. They must also be compensated for under $455 in order to be covered by the said law. But as what was mentioned, several versions of this law may vary from time to time.
However, when things go awry and you feel like you are not compensated well enough for your over time, such cases arise similar to the Texas overtime compensation lawsuit. Like the Texas pension benefit lawsuit, the case arose out of Sammy Gene Kinder’s filing of the overtime pay lawsuit as he stated he was not compensated well enough by the company where he works for longer than 40 hours a week.
As stated in the lawsuit, Encana Oil and Gas was slapped with the case due to the uncompensated overtime working hours as a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Kinder works as a gas exploration contract type of worker for the company and claims that he had the same responsibilities as any regular employee. Kinder has also stated that Encana allegedly referred to him as a contract worker in order to avoid legal responsibilities. With his overtime compensation lawsuit in Texas, Kinder is asking for the fruits or the rewards for the labors that he had spent for his unpaid overtime compensation.
