Oilfield Claim Lawyer in Houston, Texas

While the oil and gas industry continues to open up job opportunities to millions of people, more and more workers are seeing their federal rights violated.  Typically speaking, under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), workers in the oil and gas industry are owed overtime pay for working more than 40 hours in a week.  Even so, many oilfield workers have 100+ hour workweeks and are not properly compensated.

Ethical & Competent Defense of Your Rights

Unfortunately, there are many tactics that an employer can use to keep back wages or overtime pay. Sometimes, an oilfield worker will be mislabeled as a salaried employee or an independent contractor, making him or her ineligible for overtime pay.  In some cases, daily rate employees are not paid a higher rate for overtime, or are simply paid a flat day rate.

Some oil and gas companies will simply refuse to pay employees for “off-the-clock” travel and jobs.  There are even employers who will maliciously underreport a worker’s hours to avoid paying full wages and overtime pay.  When you face underhanded tactics, you need an honest, powerhouse legal advocate in your corner.
