A former employee has filed a lawsuit for unpaid overtime in Midland, Texas against WCC Energy, LLC. WCC, which is based in Anson, Texas, is an oilfield services company. The lawsuit also names WCC’s owner, Ronald Worden, as a defendant, alleging that he was a “joint employer” of the plaintiff when he worked at WCC.
The former employee alleges that as an Operator (he was both a Field Operator and a Senior Operator) for WCC, he routinely worked more than forty hours per week, as he regularly worked approximately 80-90 hours per week. He further alleges that he was paid day rates, and thus was not compensated for the overtime that he worked. The plaintiff further alleges that he was retaliated against by WCC when he told his boss that he believed he was owed unpaid overtime, resulting in his termination.
The plaintiff seeks to have his case proceed as a collective action lawsuit so that any employee who works or worked for WCC Energy, LLC as an Operator within the past three years that was paid day rates may join the lawsuit and seek overtime pay and liquidated damages. In order to participate in the lawsuit, Operators who worked for WCC Energy, LLC and were paid day rates during the last three years must file a consent to join form. The plaintiff is represented by Josh Borsellino of the law firm of Borsellino, P.C.
