Oil Industry Employees

No Company is Too Big to Play Fair.

According to federal law, most employees must be paid overtime wages when they work more than forty hours in a week unless they are covered by an exemption established by law. Depending on their job duties, employees in the oil and gas industry may not fit under any of the exemptions and therefore may be eligible for overtime wages. Our firm has handled many lawsuits involving overtime wages in the oilfield.

Federal investigators at the U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division have also focused on wage and hour violations in the oil and gas industry. For instance, mud loggers and mud logging technicians were awarded back wages through a Department of Labor investigation.
