Lawsuit filed: Former employee sues Fenwick Protective, Inc. for minimum wage and overtime violations

On February 10, 2014, Dunham & Jones, P.C. filed suit in Federal Court in the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division, against Fenwick Protective, Inc. and Robert Fenwick, individually on behalf of former employee Erik Henderson, alleging both minimum wage and overtime violations.

Mr. Henderson filed suit under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) for all unpaid overtime hours worked within the three-year period prior to the filing of the suit. Mr. Henderson, who worked in the Dallas area, alleges that Fenwick Protective, Inc. and Robert Fenwick refused to pay Mr. Henderson overtime throughout his entire period of employment with the Defendants.

Notably, after Mr. Henderson complained about Defendants’ illegal refusal to compensate him for all hours worked, his hours were reduced, resulting in a reduction of pay.
