Biller & Kimble has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of the current and former “technicians”—HVACs, plumbers, and electricians—who have worked at the Hunter Super Techs locations in Oklahoma and Texas.
The plaintiff claims that the technicians are paid on a “piece rate” basis, i.e., they are paid a percentage of each job they complete. But, when it took them more than 40 hours per week to complete their work, the company refused to pay overtime at time-and-a-half of their “regular rate.” The plaintiff alleges this policy violates the FLSA and Oklahoma law.
The plaintiff also alleges that the company refused to pay the wages they promised to pay in other ways. For example, on some jobs, the plaintiff claims the company paid the technicians out at a lower percentage than promised. On other jobs, the company deducted amounts from the technicians pay to pay the wages of other employees. These policies also violate Oklahoma law and federal law in weeks when overtime was worked.
The technicians seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages and liquidated damages, unpaid earned wages, along with their costs, expenses, and attorneys’ fees.
The plaintiff alleges that Hunter is owned and operated by Essential Services Intermediate Holding Corporation d/b/a “TurnPoint Services”. TurnPoint owns and operates 40 similar skilled trade brands around the country.
