We recently have been taking calls from individuals who work in the fracking industry as environmental inspectors, and environmental technicians. Many of these employees are paid on a day-rate or per diem basis. These employees work long hours without getting any extra overtime pay. This can be illegal. Employees paid on a day-rate, per-dies, or per-day basis are entitled to extra overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per week. If you are employed in the fracking industry by an environmental inspection or consulting company and are not getting extra overtime pay, please feel free to call us for a free and confidential consultation.
