UNPAID WAGE & HOUR CLAIMS IN ODESSA
ODESSA EMPLOYMENT LAWYERS STANDING UP FOR WORKERS IN TEXAS
It comes as fairly common knowledge that employees in Texas State are entitled to the federally mandated minimum hourly wage amount. If they were not, a serious Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violation would be committed by their employers. Despite the clarity of the law and the severity of penalties for violations, employers attempt to reduce wages earned or hours worked through deceit and dishonesty, all to save their company’s bottom line.

With more than 15 years of legal experience, we are not surprised by anything that the opposition tries to throw our way. When you want the power and know-how of a large firm but the care and personalized attention of a small firm, we invite you to call 713.581.9001 and consult with our professional team for free.
Violations That Spur Unpaid Wage & Hour Claims
With the rise of direct paycheck deposit options growing in popularity, employees can conveniently receive their pay without having to worry about making a trip to the bank or losing a physical paystub. For as much ease as this gives an employee, it gives just as much room to employers to act dishonestly. By making slight to moderate modifications to wages or hours, and in knowing that employees rarely actually look at their paychecks, they can steadily take more and more money out of their workers’ hands without notice. If you use direct deposit and suspect your employer is violating the FLSA, please keep a close watch on your account.
Other practices employers may use that are punishable violations include:
- Unfairly reducing employee wages to account for tips.
- Coercing employees to work while clocked out.
- Delaying or stopping pay as a penalty.
- Failing to comply with minimum wage standards.
