Pharaoh Energy Services, LLC has been sued by two former employees for overtime violations in federal court in New Mexico. During their time with Pharaoh, Plaintiffs allege that they typically worked approximately 100 hours per week. According to the lawsuit, Plaintiffs, along with all of Pharaoh’s field personnel, were paid on a salary basis regardless of the number of hours they worked in a given day or week, and never received overtime pay. The lawsuit alleges that there are a large number of similarly situated field personnel who work or have worked for Pharaoh, all of whom were paid on a salary basis and denied overtime pay, in violation of state and federal overtime laws.
The lawsuit was filed as a class action, alleging violations of the New Mexico overtime statute. The lawsuit was also filed as a collective action, alleging violations of the federal overtime law, the FLSA. As with any collective action, in order to participate in the lawsuit, the claimant must affirmatively opt-in to the suit by signing a consent form that can be obtained by the plaintiffs’ counsel, Josh Borsellino.
