What Constitutes an Unpaid Wage Claim?
In Texas, the employer-worker relationship is highly regulated and employees have rights which protect them from being mistreated or exploited. Despite regulations such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which protects an employee’s right to minimum wage, companies still attempt to undercut wages in order to improve their bottom line. This type of conduct is unacceptable and if you suspect your employer has done anything to withhold or reduce the money you have earned, you should consult with an attorney. In addition to seeking monetary compensation, holding employers accountable will help to ensure that other workers do not fall victim to this behavior.
Employers can attempt to keep workers from their wages with methods including:
- Paying less than minimum wage
- Unlawfully altering time sheets
- Refusing employees designated breaks
- Failure to distribute customer tips to employees
- Forcing employees to work while off the clock
- Paying straight time for overtime hours
