Examples Of Wage And Hour Disputes

In many cases, employees are not aware that their wage and hour rights have been violated. If you have questions about your own rights, speak with a Texas employment lawyer to find out if you have a case.

Wage and hour disputes may involve any of the following:

  • Failure to pay you the minimum wage, which in Texas is $7.25 an hour
  • Failure to pay you the overtime pay rate, which must be at least 1.5 times the hourly rate for every hour worked over 40 in a week
  • Failure to pay you the overtime rate when you work more than 40 hours a week at two separate restaurants owned by the same employer
  • Improperly classifying you as an independent contractor, resulting in loss of pay and benefits to you
  • Improperly classifying you as administrative, salaried or otherwise exempt from overtime pay
  • Failure to pay you for pre- and post-work activities, such as cleaning or preparing tools or work surfaces, or meeting at a central location for transportation to a job site
  • Failure to provide agreed-upon meal breaks or rest periods
