FILING A WAGE & HOUR CLAIM IN HOUSTON
Educating yourself on the laws that impact your case is important to pursuing the compensation you deserve. In the state of Texas, minimum is tied to the federal minimum wage, which is at $7.25 an hour. This was set by the Fair Labor Standards Act in July, 2009. As for tipped employees, their pay must reach $7.25 per hour or more if tips are included.

There is a two-year statute of limitations in the case that your rights under the FLSA were violated because you work in an industry that should require a minimum wage, but you have not received your minimum wages. In the case that your employer has willfully violated the law, the statute of limitations is three years.
