Republic Logistics, LLC and its owner have been sued in federal court in Midland, Texas for violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). The lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff was paid the same rate for every hour worked, even when working more than forty hours in a week and was not paid overtime.
Republic is a trucking company that handles logistics for the oil and gas industry. According to the lawsuit, Plaintiff was paid straight time for every hour worked, even when his hours exceeded 40 per week, which he did every week. Plaintiff further alleges that he was not paid for his last two paycheck cycles, resulting in Republic not paying the required minimum wage. As a result, according to the suit, Republic was unjustly enriched by the services performed by Plaintiff by not paying Plaintiff for those services.
