LAFAYETTE – A rig clerk for a global personnel and logistics services provider for the oil and gas industry alleges he was not properly compensated for overtime hours.
Michael Kistner filed a complaint on Oct. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana against Expeditors & Production Services Co. alleging that the logistics services provider violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he routinely worked for more than 40 hours in a workweek without receiving overtime premiums. The plaintiff holds Expeditors & Production Services Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay overtime compensation at a rate time-and-one-half his regular rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for unpaid back wages, award of all damages, liquidated damages, prejudgment interest, attorneys’ fees and costs and for all other relief as the court may deem appropriate. He is represented by Randall E. Estes and Daniel B. Davis of Estes Davis Law LLC in Baton Rouge.
