Two former employees have filed a lawsuit for unpaid overtime in Midland, Texas against Bulldog Well Testing, LLC, Bull Dorado Holdings, LLC, and their owners. Bulldog, which is based in Oklahoma, is in the oilfield service industry, providing well testing, frac support services, drill outs, production testing and other services to oil and gas producers in Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado. The lawsuit also names the owners of Bulldog and Bull Dorado, Barry Hamlin, Gordon Highfill and Kirk Miller, as defendants, alleging that they were “joint employers” of the plaintiffs when they worked at Bulldog.
The former employees allege that as field personnel for Bulldog, they routinely worked more than forty hours per week, as they regularly worked approximately 80-90 hours per week. They further allege that they were paid day rates, and thus were not compensated for the overtime that they worked.
The plaintiffs seek to have their case proceed as a collective action lawsuit so that any employee who works or worked for Bulldog Well Testing, LLC as field personnel 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, field personnel who worked for Bulldog Well Testing, 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.
