Unpaid Overtime Lawsuits in Pecos
Pecos Employment Law Lawyers Fighting for You
Texas State legislation permits the majority of hourly workers to receive
overtime pay benefits equal to time-and-a-half, or 150% of their regular
hourly wage. Overtime pay begins once an employee has already worked 40
hours that same week. If an employer does not give the employee justly
earned overtime pay, a lawsuit may be created to secure it.

Cheating the System and Hurting Employees
There are employees that are not eligible to receive overtime in the State
of Texas. This classification of worker is generally referred to as an
independent contractor and is exempt from overtime benefits.
Exempt workers in Pecos, Texas may include:
- Contracted sales members
For the most part, it is quite rare to actually be an ineligible worker.
What may be happening instead of you being lawfully ineligible is that
your employer has taken steps to intentionally cheat you out of your
overtime pay. This can be done by categorizing your occupation into a job description
that it is not. It could be done by offering you alternatives to overtime
pay, like a free lunch. Sometimes they intentionally forget to calculate
or enter the time you worked beyond 40 hours. Whatever reason you are
not receiving pay, it must be considered an infringement on your rights
as a Texan worker.
