On September 14, 2016, Young & Newsom, PC attorneys Jeremi Young and Collin Wynne won a jury verdict in favor of their clients who worked for oilfield service company Crest Pumping Technologies, a subsidiary of Nine Energy Services.

The employees, Scot Carley and Brandon Brown, worked for Crest as Cementers in west Texas. Crest paid their cementers a salary and certain bonuses, but failed to pay them overtime compensation for hours worked over 40 each week. Crest asserted numerous exemptions in its attempts to justify why it failed to follow federal overtime laws. A federal jury unanimously rejected each of Crest's defenses, found that Carley and Brown were unlawfully denied overtime pay, and determined that each of them worked 80 hours per week (40 overtime hours), on average, during each week they were employeed. The federal judge who presided over the case will determine how much in unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages, and attorneys' fees Crest will be required to pay.

Oil and gas service providers commonly violate federal overtime laws in numerous ways. Click here for an explanation of some of the more common violations.
