Oilfield driver sues Wildcat Services for unpaid overtime
A former employee has filed an unpaid overtime lawsuit against Wildcat Services, LLC. Wildcat, which is based in Midland, Texas, is a service company specializing in hydro-excavating, water well drilling, water well pump service and surface rental equipment for the oil and gas industry. The lawsuit also names Wildcat’s owner, Billy Steward, Jr., as a defendant, alleging that he was a “joint employer” of the plaintiff when he worked at Wildcat.
The former employee alleges that he routinely worked more than forty hours per week, as he regularly worked approximately 70 hours per week, and that he was paid a salary, and thus was not compensated for the overtime that he worked. The lawsuit further alleges that Wildcat’s Drivers drive local routes within the state of Texas (i.e. they do not cross state lines) and they haul sewage or water, which does not cross state lines.
The plaintiff seeks to have his case proceed as a collective action lawsuit so that any employee who works or worked for Wildcat Services, LLC as a driver within the past three years that was paid a salary may join the lawsuit and seek overtime pay and liquidated damages. In order to participate in the lawsuit, Drivers who worked for Wildcat Services, LLC and were paid a salary 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.
