British Company Will Pay Nearly $400,000 for Violating Texas Labor Law

. By
Sugar Land, TXAn international production company that claims to be the leading provider of fabric maintenance, construction support and related services to the oil, gas and petrochemical industries has agreed to pay almost $400,000 in back overtime pay for violating Texas labor law.

The Associated Press reports that the American branch of Scotland-based RBG Limited recently faced arbitration claiming that 482 contracted construction and technical workers and engineers were improperly compensated under federal and state employment law. A recent report from the US Labor Department substantiated these claims, forcing the company to reimburse employees for their services.

The Labor Department's investigation found the company guilty of similar transgressions at its Cohocton, New York location.

Texas employment and labor laws provide workers with protection from workplace discrimination, assurance of employee benefits and a fair and steady wage. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers in this country are required by law to pay contracted workers a competitive wage based on federal and state minimums and hours worked, including overtime pay.
