HOUSTON — A Houston woman is suing an aviation business, alleging violation of workers compensation acts in failing to pay overtime.
Mary L. Thomas, individually and on behalf of others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint Dec. 13 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Huntleigh USA Corporation, alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, Thomas, a passenger service agent, was compensated below the minimum wage for all work she performed and was denied overtime wages. The plaintiff alleges Huntleigh USA did not pay wages for uninterrupted meal breaks and refused to pay overtime.
Thomas seeks trial by jury, an order certifying this case as a collective action, all unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney fees, court costs and expenses and all other equitable relief. She is represented by attorney Trang Q. Tran of The Tran Law Firm in Houston.
