Unpaid Overtime Lawsuits in Fort Worth
Fort Worth Employment Law Attorneys
Have you worked more than 40 hours in a week, but continue to be paid at
the same rate? In Texas, when a non-exempt employee hits the 40 hour mark
in a given week, they must receive overtime pay for any subsequent hours
worked. This is not a choice; it’s the law. When an employer goes
against federal and state regulations by refusing to pay earned overtime,
they must be held responsible for their actions. If you believe that your
paycheck doesn’t accurately reflect the amount of money you have
rightly earned, do not waste any time in contacting the
Fort Worth employment law attorneys at Moore & Associates.

Non-Exempt Employees & Independent Contractors
One of the first steps in discovering if you have an unpaid overtime claim
is determining whether or not you are classified as a “non-exempt”
employee. Why does this matter? In Texas, not every worker is eligible
for overtime pay; however, under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA),
non-exempt employees must be paid at one-and-a-half times their regular pay rate.
Employers may attempt to get around paying overtime by classifying an otherwise
eligible worker as an independent contractor. These roles, which can include
farmhands and members of the military, do not typically qualify for overtime
and are not guaranteed the same protections as non-exempt employees under
the FLSA. If you believe that your employer has incorrectly classified
your role in order to avoid paying you the money that you have earned,
our firm can help you to understand your legal options.
