C. Permian Power Tong Lawsuit: The Potential Stakes Involved

Federal wage law permits employees denied overtime wages to potentially recover double the amount of wages owed to them that accrued over the past three years. Based on estimates from our clients in other cases, including a case against Wyoming Casing, we believe that DC Power Tong Employees may be due over a thousand dollars per pay period of their employment if Permian Power Tong failed to comply with federal overtime laws. 

D. Permian Power Tong Lawsuit: Statute of Limitations Concerns

WARNING: Employees in federal overtime actions can only recover wages dating three years back from the date they file their consent in federal court in an unpaid wage lawsuit. Employees that do not timely file their consent in a federal wage action may lose money each and every day they fail to file their consent in federal court to join a federal overtime action.

D. Permian Power Tong Lawsuit: Allegations

The Lawsuit claims that Permian Power Tong cheated its employees of proper overtime because it failed to:

  • Include Per Foot or Per Job pay to increase the overtime rate paid to Workers; and
  • Count hours spent working on a Per Foot or Per Job Basis towards overtime hours.
