Seven Point Energy Reaches Preliminary Settlement

The parties have reached a class action settlement in Crigler v. Seven Point Energy Services, Inc., Case No.: 19-cv-00604-MJH (W.D.Pa.), over allegations that Defendant failed to properly pay Plaintiff  and all similarly situated employees overtime wages for hours worked over 40 hours per workweek in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act (“PMWA”), and the Ohio Minimum Wage Standards Act (“OMFWSA”). Plaintiff alleged that Seven Point failed to properly calculate the regular rate of pay by excluding non-discretionary bonuses as part of the calculation during the Relevant Period. All current and former hourly employees who worked for Seven Point Energy Services, Inc. between May 22, 2016 and May 22, 2019 are eligible to receive money under the settlement.

If approved, the Settlement will provide class members with an additional $.625 for each overtime hour they worked during which they received the safety surge bonus during period of May 22, 2016 to May 22, 2019, which represents a full recovery of unpaid overtime wages. In addition, Seven Point agreed to pay attorney’s fees and costs as required under the law. Except for individuals who opt-out of the Settlement, all Settlement Class Members will be sent a check, without the need to submit a claim.
