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.
