Unpaid Overtime Lawsuits in Lubbock

Employment Law Attorneys in Lubbock County

Tricky or intentionally complicated legal loopholes could be exploited by your employer to prevent you from collecting proper overtime pay.  The end result could be working more than 40 hours on the clock only to see no extra income for your hard work and dedication.  The same can also be true if vague wording in your employment contract inexplicably, and possibly illegally, exempts you from earning overtime.

Employee Status in Lubbock, Texas

Seating in the High Plains, Lubbock is surrounded by farmlands, many of which grow and cultivate cotton.  While many farmhands and other agricultural workers are exempt from earning overtime due to state and federal statutes, many others in the same field of work are not.  You should not assume that you do not earn overtime pay if you work on a farm, and you should never take your employer’s word without researching the matter yourself, regardless of where you work.

In some situations, you may notice that you are categorized as an independent contractor on your pay stub or within your employee file.  There are not many careers that actually fall into this category.  Instead, employers can intentionally mislabel employees as independent contractors, since this type of worker does not earn overtime pay and other benefits.
