PITTSBURGH – A Pittsburgh man alleges his former fracking services employer did not pay him for any overtime hours worked.
Travis Wilson filed a complaint on Nov. 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against FTS International Services LLC, formerly known as Frac Tech Services International LLC, citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was an employee of the defendant from June 2011 to March 2017 and worked between 70 to 80 hours per week. He alleges he was misclassified as exempt from overtime wages.
The plaintiff holds FTS International Services LLC, formerly known as Frac Tech Services International LLC, responsible because the defendant allegedly did not compensate him at a rate of time-and-one-half of his regular hourly rate for overtime work.
The plaintiff seeks all sums found due and owing, liquidated damages, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Ryan P. Stewart and Noah R. Jordan of Rothman Gordon P.C. in Pittsburgh.
