Midland Company Ordered to Pay Overtime Back Wages

MIDLAND - A Tall City oil and gas company has been ordered to pay overtime back wages.

The U.S. Department of Labor says Dawson Geophysical wrongly classified workers as being executives or administrative staff when they were entitled to overtime wages for working more than 40 hours in a week.

Dawson Geophysical has already paid back $100,356 to current and former field workers.
