Halliburton Pays Nearly $18.3 million in Overtime

The money will go to more than 1,000 employees nationwide, the U.S. Department of Labor announced.

Halliburton has agreed to pay $18,293,557 to 1,016 employees nationwide in what is one of the largest recoveries of overtime wages in recent years for the DOL. An investigation was completed by the Wage and Hour Division as part of an ongoing compliance initiative in the oil and gas industry.

Halliburton incorrectly categorized employees in 28 positions as exempt from overtime. The company also failed to keep accurate records of hours worked by employees in these positions, according to DOL.

"The Department of Labor takes very seriously its responsibility to ensure workers receive the wages they have earned. This settlement will put millions of dollars where they belong—in the pockets of hardworking people and their families," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez. "Employers who don't pay their employees the wages they have earned don't just hurt their workers, they undercut employers who play by the rules. That's why we work every day to help level the playing field."
