Overtime Pay Violation

Halliburton paid nearly $18.3 million in overtime pay to 1,016 employees nationwide after the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) determined that the company incorrectly categorized employees in 28 job positions as exempt from overtime. The DOL found that Halliburton did not pay overtime to salaried employees working as field service representatives, pipe recovery specialists, drilling tech advisors, perforating specialists, and reliability tech specialists when they worked more than 40 hours in a week, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The company also failed to keep accurate records of hours worked by these employees.
