Federal Court awards overtime to O’Brien client

On February 28, 2014, federal Judge Sam Sparks awarded an O’Brien Law Firm client $36,900 for unpaid overtime wages and liquidated damages.  The client worked as a short-haul truck driver for the employer for many years, and was paid on a per-load basis.  Unfortunately for the employer, the driver was not exempt from the provisions of the federal overtime law – the Fair Labor Standards Act – and had worked a significant number of 40+ hour work weeks without getting paid any overtime.  During the case, O’Brien obtained a sanctions order against the employer for failing to turn over the driver’s employment records. That case is Rivera v. Eloy Herrera d/b/a Herrera Trucking, A-12-CA-1080-SS, in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas.
