Do you currently or have you within the past three years worked as a lease operator or pumper and been denied overtime pay? If so, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible to learn about your rights to unpaid overtime.
Lease operators are often denied overtime pay. Sometimes they are classified as employees but paid a salary. Others are classified as independent contractors and paid a day rate or straight time. These pay schemes can and often do violate state and/or federal overtime laws. Within the past several years, XTO, Mewbourne Oil Company, Encana Oil & Gas, EOG Resources, Sanchez Oil & Gas and Chesapeake Energy, among others, have been sued by current or former lease operators for overtime violations.
