SACRAMENTO — A former employee has filed a class-action lawsuit against an oil company for alleged unpaid wages. 

Robert Pruitt filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated on Sept. 29 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Key Energy Services LLC and Does 1 through 25, alleging that they failed to provide fair compensation to the plaintiff for his work.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours per week without being paid any overtime compensation or given adequate meal breaks. The plaintiff holds Key Energy Services LLC and Does 1 through 25 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to pay overtime premiums to the plaintiff for work done that exceeded 40 hours per week.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctive relief, damages, liquidated damages, restitution, statutory penalties, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by George P. Moschopoulos of The Law Office of George Moschopoulos APC in Dana Point and Galvin B. Kennedy of Kennedy Hodges LLP in Houston.
