Houston K-9 Officers Demand Pay for Dog Care

     HOUSTON (CN) – K-9 officers say Houston violates the Fair Labor Standards Act by not paying them overtime for their work caring for the cop dogs at home. More than 30 officers sued the city in Federal Court, claiming they are not properly compensated for housing, feeding and grooming the dogs after they leave the office.

     The plaintiffs are also suing under the Portal to Portal Act, which was enacted to ensure employees are compensated from the time they enter a workplace to when they leave.
     The officers are represented by Houston attorney Robert Armbruster.
