Former Nine Energy Employee? Call About Your Eligibility.
The Siegel Law Group PLLC and Lee & Braziel, LLP recently filed a federal overtime lawsuit against Nine Energy and Peak Pressure Control, LLC. The lawsuit challenges the oilfield Nine Energy’s practice of failing to oilfield service workers overtime in addition to salary and a daily rate. The Nine Energy lawsuit lawsuit alleges that Nine Energy willfully misclassified pressure control operators as exempt from overtime in contravention of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The Siegel Law Group filed the Nine Energy lawsuit as a collective action. The putative class alleged includes all current and former pressure control operators who were (1) paid a day rate and salary, but did not receive overtime despite working over 40 hours in one or more workweek.
