Houston Overtime Wage Claims Lawyer

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act requires that employers must pay their employees a fair wage. Hourly employees may also be eligible to receive 1.5 times their standard hourly rate for any hours over their typical work week. While most employees are aware of these laws, they may not know about how their employers may be violating these laws. When employees fail to receive adequate compensation for their overtime work, they can file overtime wage claims against their employer.

Overtime wage claims empower workers to hold employers accountable for wage theft. If you’ve been robbed of compensation you’ve earned, file a claim to get what you deserve.

Overtime Wage Claims for Unpaid Overtime

The FLSA establishes the required minimum wage rates for “non-exempt” employees. These employees must receive overtime pay for each hour worked over 40 hours in a work week. Workers who do not receive their required overtime pay can file overtime wage claims for unpaid overtime. Unpaid overtime claims cover any time that the employee works for the employer over and above the 40-hour work week, regardless of if the employee completes those task on the employer’s premises. Employees can also file overtime wage claims against employers for “off-the-clock” work.
