Who Can Be Considered an Employee?
Laredo, Texas is literally right on the border of Mexico and its sibling city, Nuevo Laredo. Employers who are looking to save their company money illegitimately may attempt to ignore or violate employment laws, hoping that new immigrants to the region will not know that they are committing a wrongdoing. The fact is that if you are expected to wear a uniform, clock in and out, meet company regulations, and have a regular set of tasks, you should be considered an employee.
If you have been labeled an independent contractor instead, you need to check your paystubs. Independent contractors do not need to be paid overtime in most situations due to state- and federal-level regulations. Choosing to categorize you in such a way is a fast way a deceptive employer can cut their hourly labor costs.
