Who Are Employees and Who Are Not?
In Brownsville, many people travel north or to the coast to work on an oilfield or oilrig. Despite punching in regularly, being forced to wear company uniforms, and must meet numerous company guidelines on a daily basis, dishonest employers may attempt to call such workers independent contractors, instead of simply employees. Why would they mislabel their employees? Under federal and state regulations, independent contractors do not need to be paid overtime after worker more than 40 hours in a single week. Rarely have our Brownsville employment lawyers seen a case where an employer actually made a mistake and mislabeled a worker; instead, deception is often the basis of their actions.
Brownsville is also rich with farming lands. While a career in agricultural services can be rewarding, it is important to note that farmhands and anyone else who works on a farm may legally be classified as an independent contractor.
