Federal Overtime Regulations
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), non-exempt employees in Texas
must be paid overtime for each hour they work past 40 hours in any given
week. There is currently no limit to the hours an employee can work and
as each period resets after seven days, employers may not average the
hours between two or more weeks. This means that for every hour of overtime
worked, employers are legally required to pay workers an additional 50%
of their hourly wage.
Employment law can be tedious and employers may often try to incorrectly
classify their employees as independent contractors. Under FLSA regulations,
certain workers, such as independent contractors, are considered “exempt”
employees, meaning that they do not qualify for overtime benefits. While
there are certain jobs which are excluded from FLSA rules, such as many
agricultural positions, most jobs must meet strict regulations in order
to be considered exempt. If you believe that your employer has withheld
overtime by attempting to unlawfully classify your position as exempt,
our firm wants to hear about it.
