Oil and Gas Workers Overtime Pay Laws & Field Worker Overtime Lawsuits

Oil and Gas Workers often work far more than 40 hours in a workweek, but many of them are not paid overtime as required under 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.  Some states have also enacted overtime laws that regulate the number of hours an employee can work within 24 hours before receiving overtime.

In calculating the number of hours worked, the employer must consider all required work performed in all facilities and departments, both before and after a shift, including staff meetings and required paid training.  If an employer does not include all of this time in the calculation of hours worked, it can result in the Oil and Gas Worker not receiving all of the required overtime.  The employer’s failure to pay required overtime to Oil and Gas Workers can result in a lawsuit for overtime pay. Oil & Gas Worker Overtime Pay Lawsuits

Employers often violate the FLSA by failing to pay Oil and Gas Workers the required overtime pay.  If you are an Oil and Gas Worker who worked more than 40 hours a week but did not receive overtime pay, you may be entitled to file an Oil and Gas Worker overtime pay lawsuit.  These lawsuits are often filed by an entire group of Oil and Gas Workers against an employer who violates the FLSA.

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.  There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits, so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.  If you wait, you may lose your ability to recover some or all of your back pay.
