Minimum Wage and Overtime Entitlement
According to Fair Labor Standards Act you are owed at least a minimum wage for every hour you work and you may also be entitled to compensation for working overtime. Overtime is any hour worked by a nonexempt employee in excess of 40 hours per week.
If you are paid hourly and you have worked over 40 hours in one workweek, you deserve to be paid overtime wages for the extra hours you worked.
Misclassification and Seeking Compensation
A common problem we encounter is employees who are mis-classified as exempt or as independent contractors when, in fact, they are not. I can help you determine whether you’re entitled to overtime compensation and represent you in seeking it.
If you think you haven’t been compensated for all the time you’ve worked, contact me at (512) 370-5220. You worked hard for those wages and you should collect what is rightfully yours.
Potential Paydays and Overtime Wage Disputes
Violations of minimum wage and overtime payment can lead to substantial paydays for underpaid or unpaid employees.
Depending on the circumstances under which the wage and hour violations occurred, a worker whose FLSA rights have been violated might have the right to file an overtime wage dispute claim.
