On November 5, 2014, a former employee of Kayden Industries (USA), Inc. filed a lawsuit in the Western District Court of New York seeking overtime pay. He brought the case on behalf of solids control technicians who worked for Kayden Industries at oil fields across the country. In the complaint, he alleges that Kayden Industries misclassified him and his co-workers as exempt employees, asserting that the manual labor they perform as solids control technicians does not fit under any of the exemptions from the law’s overtime pay requirements.
Kayden Industries is a manufacturer and servicer in the solids control industry and has operations throughout the United States, Canada, and locations around the world.
Plaintiff’s attorney Michele Fisher stated, “Solids control technicians typically work long hours at the oil fields (often 12 hour days for 14 days straight) without receiving overtime compensation. We seek to get them paid the overtime premiums provided by law.”
Plaintiffs are represented by Michele R. Fisher and Alex M. Baggio.
The case is entitled, Lebarron v. Kayden Industries (USA), Inc., No.: 6:14-cv-06628-FPG (Western District of New York).
