BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) An Idaho man working in the North Dakota oil patch says a trucking company is breaking federal law by failing to pay overtime.

Devon Seeling, of Coeur d Alene, Idaho, has filed a civil lawsuit against Moorhead, Minnesota-based AM-PM Trucking LLC, which maintains an office in Underwood, North Dakota.

Seeling says he regularly worked more than 60 hours per week. The suit says rather than pay overtime for more than 40 hours of work, the company paid Seeling and other drivers a percentage of the revenue generated by each truckload.

The complaint seeks unspecified damages. Seeling is asking for class action status for drivers who have worked for AM-PM Trucking in the last three years.

Officials with the company could not be reached for comment.
