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:

  • Administrators
  • Babysitters
  • Farmers
  • Fishermen
  • 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.
