A former oilfield worker of Chevron U.S.A., Inc. has filed a federal lawsuit against the company, asserting claims for unpaid overtime. Chevron is a major oil and gas production company. Plaintiff worked as a safety advisor of Defendant from approximately January of 2014 until April of 2016. Plaintiff alleges that Defendant paid him (and other similarly situated employees) a salary in order to avoid paying overtime. During his time with Defendant, Plaintiff alleges he typically worked 100 hours per week. Plaintiff alleges that because Plaintiff and the other Chevron employees are paid a weekly salary, regardless of the number of hours worked in a given week (even those above forty), they are denied overtime pay in violation of the FLSA.
If you work or in the past three years worked for Chevron and was
- paid on a salary basis; and
- a Safety Advisor (or had similar job duties), you may have a claim for unpaid overtime, and you could be owed thousands of dollars in unpaid overtime plus an equal amount in liquidated damages. If you believe you may be owed overtime, you should consider speaking with an experienced overtime attorney as soon as possible to learn about and protect your legal rights.
The plaintiff seeks to have his case proceed as a collective action lawsuit so that any employee who was (1) paid on a salary basis; and (2) a Safety Advisor (or had similar job duties) within the past three years may join the lawsuit and seek overtime pay and liquidated damages.
