On September 2, 2020, the Hon. Marilyn J. Horan granted final approval of a $100,0000 wage theft class action settlement in Crigler v. Seven Point Energy Services, Inc., Case No. 2:19-cv-00604-MJH (W.D.Pa.). The case involved allegations that Seven Point Energy (the defendant) failed to properly pay William Crigler (the plaintiff) and other hourly oil and gas workers wages for hours worked over 40 hours per workweek, in violation of state and federal overtime law. Mr. Crigler alleged that Seven Point failed to include non-discretionary bonuses when calculating his and other workers’ overtime pay, as required by law. The settlement provided impacted employees on average hundreds of dollars in backpay, which was roughly full reimbursement for their unpaid overtime.
