The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has filed a lawsuit against three Houston-based ambulance companies—Pride EMS, Allyn Medical EMS and North Cypress EMS—and their common owners, seeking an injunction for alleged Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations.

The suit seeks $142,000 in minimum wage, overtime and back pay for 76 dispatchers, paramedics and administrative workers.

An investigation by the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division found that some employees were misclassified as independent contractors while others were paid “straight time” for all hours worked, even those exceeding 40 hours per week. The DOL also claims the companies failed to maintain accurate records.
