FTS International Services, LLC

Case Information:

This case involves a class of frac operators who are claiming overtime violations against their employer, oilfield hydraulic fracturing and wireline services company FTS International Services, LLC.   In the lawsuit, the Plaintiffs claim that FTS deprived its frac operators required overtime wages by failing to include certain bonuses in their hourly rates of pay before calculating their overtime compensation.

This case is brought under both the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) (federal law) and the New Mexico Minimum Wage Act.  We intend to request class certification under both laws.

Employers that violate the FLSA are subject to double damages for all of the wages they failed to pay their workers.  Violations of the New Mexico Minimum Wage Act subject the employer to treble damages. Under both laws, employers are also responsible for an employee’s attorneys’ fees and costs if the employee prevails.  In the lawsuit, we are seeking to represent a class of the defendant’s frac operators and are requesting lost wages, liquidated (double) damages (under the FLSA), treble damages (under the New Mexico Minimum Wage Act), injunctive relief, attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses.
