Wages / Overtime Claims

Houston Attorney for Wages / Overtime Claims

Accomplished Wage and Hour Attorneys in Houston, Texas

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers are required to pay employees a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, as of 2016. For non-exempt employees, employers are required to pay time and a half for any work beyond a 40-hour workweek. Additionally, if a state has a higher minimum wage than that set by federal law, the higher standard applies. However, a number of types of employment are specifically exempt from overtime.

For service-related jobs that involve direct customer interaction and tipping, specific rules apply regarding tips and minimum wage and tip pools. When a company violates wage and hour laws, they can be held financially liable for back pay and other damages. At the employment law office of Shellist Lazarz Slobin, we advise and represent employees who have been denied a fair wage or overtime pay by their employer.

We urge you to speak with a Houston wage and hour dispute attorney if you have any questions. Call us at (713) 352-3433 today!
