Sprint Pipeline Services failed to accurately calculate overtime rates because they did not include per diems, truck pay, welder unit pay, and bonuses in overtime calculations.
On May 29, 2014, hourly employee Francisco Garcia filed a class action lawsuit against Primoris Services Corporation and SPS Liquidation, LP (formerly known as Sprint Pipeline Services, LP) on behalf of all hourly pipeline employees. Garcia was not paid sufficient overtime. Sprint Pipeline Services failed to accurately calculate his overtime rate because it did not include per diems, truck pay, welder unit pay and bonuses in the overtime calculation. As a result, Sprint Pipeline Services could be required to pay up to three years of back wages and unpaid overtime, additional damages and attorney fees.
If you worked in the field for the oil and gas industry and were paid a per diem, job bonus, truck pay, welder pay or any other type of allowance, you may entitled to back wages and unpaid overtime.
