Employee Protections

The state and federal regulations which govern employment law can be convoluted and workers may not be aware of the full range of protections they are granted.  Business practices are highly regulated by both federal and state law and many of the attempts employers make to reduce employee costs are against the law.  Wage and hour disputes can happen in a number of ways and if you are unsure if you have a claim, do not hesitate to contact our firm. Our attorneys know your rights and are only a phone call away.

Common hour & wage violations:

  • Failing to pay minimum wage: As a Texan, you must be paid at a rate equal to or greater than the minimum wage in your area.  While most people are aware of the federal minimum wage, states and cities also set wage standards.  If your city’s wage is higher than the state and federal requirement, employers must legally pay you at the higher rate.
  • Overtime Violations: The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) covers all non-exempt Texas workers regarding overtime regulations.  Employers are required to pay time and a half for each hour an employee works past 40 hours in any given week. This means that you are owed an additional 50% of your hourly pay for each hour worked.  It is also important to note that exempt employees are not eligible for overtime.
