The Case alleges that Kingdom Guard violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay employees overtime. The Case also alleges that Kingdom Guard violated Texas Common Law by failing to pay employees for all hours worked.
Plaintiff believes that she and other hourly employees are entitled to recover unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, interest on the unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, and costs.

Anyone who worked for Kingdom Guard as an hourly employee within the past three years is potentially eligible for the Case.
