Minimum Wage And Overtime Claim Attorneys
The federal Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to pay overtime wages to nonexempt employees who work more than 40 hours per week. Texas employers must comply with federal overtime laws. Texas law requires employers to pay a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. Employees earning tips can be paid $2.13 per hour, but the employer must make up any shortfall between the wage rate and the amount of the minimum wage.
Wage and hour laws are complex. Employers often do not understand their responsibilities and employees do not understand their rights. Kaiser ♦ Sacco, PLLC, in Arlington Texas, is a source of information to employers and employees alike. Our attorneys can advise you concerning the law, and if necessary, represent you in litigation.
