Two former self-storage managers of Al’s Mini Storage in Beaumont, Texas, are suing owner Jim Speed over alleged unpaid wages and overtime. Arretta and Frederick Lawson claim they regularly worked at least 80 hours per week while serving as resident managers from Aug. 26 to Sept. 25, but didn’t receive any paid wages. They were provided a rent-free apartment, according to the source.
The Lawsons filed their complaint on Oct. 15 in the Beaumont Division of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. They allege Speed violated the Fair Labor Standards Act. They are seeking compensation for liquidated damages, relief, unpaid minimum wages and unpaid overtime, as well as attorney fees and costs.
They are represented by attorneys Daniel B. Ross and Charles L. Scalise of the Ross Law Group in Austin, Texas.
