Can an oil and gas field technician file an unpaid overtime pay lawsuit?

Yes, an oil and gas field technician may be able to file an unpaid overtime pay lawsuit unless otherwise exempt by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA requires employers to pay all non-exempt Oil and Gas Workers overtime for all hours worked over 40 in the workweek.  However, some states have also enacted overtime laws that regulate the number of hours an employee can work within 24 hours before receiving overtime.

If you believe you have been denied overtime pay, your best option is to contact an experienced attorney who can advise you of your rights under the FLSA and state laws. By talking to one of our experienced overtime pay attorneys we can tell you whether you may be entitled to file lawsuit eliminating a lot of work if you were to represent yourself.

The FLSA has many rules and exceptions, and state laws can complicate the picture even more.  There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits, so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately. Call (855) 754-2795 now for a free, no obligation case evaluation.
