In one of the largest recoveries of overtime wages in recent years for the U.S. Department of Labor, oil and gas service provider Halliburton has agreed to pay $18,293,557 to 1,016 employees nationwide.

The DOL investigated Halliburton as part of an ongoing, multi-year compliance initiative in the oil and gas industry.

Investigators found Halliburton did not pay overtime to salaried oil field employees when they worked more than 40 hours in a workweek, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

A DOL statement reminded employers, “Simply paying an employee a salary does not necessarily mean the employee is not eligible for overtime.”
