Wage Claims in Houston, Texas
Does your employer owe you?
Does your employer pay you below minimum wage? Or does your employer neglect to pay overtime? Did you know that if you are of legal working age you have the right to report such abuse and seek damages based on The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, record-keeping, and youth employment standards affecting employees in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments. Workers are entitled to a minimum wage of not less than $7.25 per hour. Overtime pay must be at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay and is required after 40 hours of work in a workweek. The FLSA does not require overtime pay for work on weekends, holidays, or regular days of rest, unless overtime is worked on such days.
An employee who has been subjected to wage abuse is generally entitled to as much as three years back pay in the case of a willful violation and an equal amount as liquidated damages, plus attorney's fees and court costs.
