When Employers Fail to Pay
Failure to pay an employee for work that he or she has performed is a serious matter. Unfortunately, due to the state of the economy, a greater amount of individuals are willing to accept lower working standards and may not attempt to exercise the rights that they are entitled to. In some cases, employees are not fully aware of their rights or are worried about utilizing them for fear that they will lose their job.
It is important to remember that there is federal law in place that protects employees from unfair treatment. If an employer attempts to discriminate against you or fire you because you report unpaid wages, speak with an educated, Board Certified Texas Overtime attorney from our firm at your earliest convenience so that your rights and livelihood can be protected.
What are your employment rights?
Many individuals are confused as to whether or not they are entitled to overtime pay at all. All employees are entitled to overtime pay including many salaried employees. Sadly, many employers intentionally violate overtime laws because they assume that many employees are not aware of their rights or are confused about whether or not overtime is owed to them.
Employers that violate overtime laws, fail to pay unpaid wages, and fail to pay overtime are breaking the law. If you believe that you may be owed money, you could be given thousands of dollars plus other financial restitution. It is in your best interests to speak with a highly trained attorney at your earliest convenience.
