DALLAS UNPAID HOUR & WAGE CLAIMS
TRUSTED DALLAS EMPLOYMENT LAW ATTORNEYS
Employees are protected by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which requires all employees to receive a federally regulated minimum wage for each hour the employee works. Unfortunately, some employers may seek ways to increase their bottom line, including loop-holes or unethical practices that allow them to pay their employees less.

Why Should You File an Unpaid Wage Claim?
No matter how they go about it, it is often illegal and highly unethical for a company to cut employee wages or hours in an unfair manner. Companies may try to find ways to improve their bottom line, and cutting wages or hours may be one way they attempt this. Intentional or not, your employer has no legal grounds to take your hard-earned wages. If you suspect they are, you can seek legal recourse and recover your stolen wages.
Employers may attempt to reduce wages and hours by:
- Falsifying timesheets or hour logs
- Penalizing employees by withholding legally earned pay
- Minimizing the pay rate of tipped employees
- Paying less than the legally allowed minimum wage
- Forcing employees to work off the clock
Several of these methods are illegal, and can result in hefty fines for your employer, as well as being forced to pay you restitution.
