Understanding Wage & Hour Laws
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets federal guidelines for minimum wage, overtime pay eligibility, recordkeeping practices, and child labor standards. In addition to FLSA regulations, Texas has its own state-specific wage and hour laws that employers must adhere to.
We can help you understand these complex laws and how they apply to your situation. Whether you have concerns about unpaid overtime or believe you're being paid less than the minimum wage required by law - our skilled attorney is here to assist.
Our Austin employment lawyer can help with a variety of Texas wage violations, including:
- Unpaid overtime
- Regular rate / “straight time” for overtime
- Day-rate pay with no overtime
- Unpaid / “off-the-clock” time
- Time “shaving” and rounding down
- Unpaid travel time
- Public works minimum wage / prevailing wage violations
- Independent contractor misclassification
- Exempt employee misclassification
- Tip violations
- Meal period and rest break disputes
- Failure to include bonuses or incentives in overtime rate
- Per diem disputes
- Illegal deductions
- Failure to reimburse travel and out-of-pocket expenses
In Texas, overtime laws mandate that employees receive compensation at a rate of one and a half times their regular pay rate for any hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. However, certain employees, such as those in executive, administrative, or professional roles, may be exempt from these overtime provisions. It's important for both employers and employees to understand these regulations to ensure compliance and fair compensation for extra hours worked.
