UNPAID WAGE & HOUR CLAIMS IN BROWNSVILLE
LET OUR BROWNSVILLE EMPLOYMENT LAW ATTORNEYS REPRESENT YOU
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) entitles all employees across the country to a federally regulated minimum wage, which must be paid for every hour an employee works. While this might seem like common sense and simple fairness to you, many employers will look for loopholes or less-than-honest means to bolster their bottom line at the expense of their employees. If you think that you have been paid less than minimum wage, or if you think that your hours are being falsely reduced, it is time to get in contact with Moore & Associates.

Why You Would File an Unpaid Wage Claim
An employer who is desperate to save their company money may think of numerous ways to cut employee wages and hours unfairly. No matter what means they pursue, it is unethical and often highly illegal. If you suspect that your employer has done anything to take away your hard-earned money, whether it was intentional or not, you must be willing to take legal action and seek recourse, perhaps through a lawsuit if they will not budge.
Methods an employer may use to reduce wages and hours include:
- Paying less than minimum wage
- Falsifying timesheets
- Withholding pay as a penalty
- Minimizing pay rate of employees who receive tips
- Making employers work while not punched in
