Construction worker filed class action lawsuit against local company

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A Lubbock man files a class action lawsuit against a Wolfforth company called T&S Plastering.  Robert Johnson claims that he and other employees were not paid properly for overtime, which he claims is a violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. 

The lawsuit says in part, "Defendant failed to pay Plaintiff one and a half times the regular rate of pay for the hours that he worked over 40 hours per week." 

Johnson is suing on behalf of himself and "on behalf of all others similarly situated."  T&S Plastering has not yet filed their side of the story in court records.
