Baker Hughes Case Summary

Case Summary: This case claims that thousands of Field Specialists employed by Baker Hughes were deprived of overtime pay while being compensated using a salary and day-rate pay scheme. These employees routinely worked more than 12 hours per day and 80 hours per week performing technical services at oil and gas drill sites across the U.S. Despite working more than 40 hours per week (or over 8 or 12 hours in certain states), these workers were not paid an overtime premium as required under federal and/or state wage and hour laws.

The case includes both claims under the FLSA (federal law) and state law wage claims for Field Specialists who worked in California, New Mexico, Alaska, North Dakota, Ohio or Pennsylvania.

Client Reviews


A situation that involves attorneys is emotional - Mike Lore is an attentive listener and really helped me come to the terms of my situation. He used his understanding of the law to construct a case that was grounded in fact and skipped the needless 'finger-pointing' and 'he-said/she-said' back and forth. Mike's professionalism with me (the client) and the opposing attorney moved the case forward quickly with a successful result.

After talking to HR and trying to find answers to my questions about the overtime laws online, I was so confused. I contacted the firm and spoke to Stacy. She was so nice and took the time to review my pay stubs. She explained what the law requires and how it applied to my job. Turns out I do not have a case. Even though I didn’t have a case, she sent me a follow up email with even more information. So glad I called them.

We live in another state, but my husband's company sent him to work in Texas for 6 months. With the laws being completely different from our home state, it was nice to speak to a professional that could put us at ease and explain the laws to us.
