The Siegel Law Group and Lee & Braziel joined forces to file a lawsuit against XTO Energy, Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil, on behalf of XTO’s Lease Operators. The XTO lawsuit claims that XTO failed to pay all of its Lease Operators proper overtime because:
- XTO only paid its lease operators for a set amount of maximum hours per week;
- Lease Operators frequently worked in excess of the set amount of maximum hours; and
- XTO failed to pay those employees overtime wages for those hours.
The Plaintiff that initiated the lawsuit claims that XTO required him to work approximately 84 hours per week. Based on this estimate, XTO could potentially be held liable for up to 4,576 hours of overtime per year of his employment. You can find a copy of the Original Complaint filed to initiate the suit on March 21, 2016 here.
If you are a current or former XTO Lease Operator, we recommend that you contact us immediately to pursue your unpaid overtime claim. Failure to do so may disallow you or diminish the amount of your potential damages in the XTO lawsuit. Former and Current XTO Lease Operators only have three years to pursue their overtime claims.

XTO Lawsuit: The Stakes Involved
