O’Brien brings suit for overtime pay against local boat and motorcycle retailer

In May 2014, O’Brien Law Firm filed suit on behalf of a former employee of Central Texas PowerSports, on account of the company failing to pay all overtime due to her under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (overtime law), as claimed in the suit. Overtime cases are some of the most important cases handled by the O’Brien firm – as employees should be paid every penny that they are due under the law while they are working hard to make money for someone else. One the issues in that case that comes up frequently is where an employee who is not exempt from the requirement of +40 hours overtime pay is paid a salary. Then, when that employee is working evenings and weekends to keep up for the employer, that time may be compensable and often puts the employee over 40 hours for the week. That lawsuit is currently pending in the federal Western District of Texas.
