Houston FLSA Attorney

We Get Workers the Money They Are Entitled To

Litigation involving violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), such as wage and overtime violations, is crucial particularly at present because of the focus on wage equality and the wage gap in popular discourse. Many times, wage inequality is caused by employers who aren’t playing by the rules, even refusing to pay their employees what the law says they are entitled to. This just makes the current overall problem of income inequality worse.

Our job is to help workers get the money they are entitled to for the work they have done. We often look back as far as two or three years to help employees recover what they should have been paid in the past; in these cases, the law says we can recover not just what the employee is owed but often double.

What Are My Rights Under the FLSA?

Nonexempt employees are entitled to coverage under the FLSA. This means that if you qualify as a nonexempt employee, you are entitled to a certain minimum wage as well as time and one-half your regular rate of pay for each overtime hour you work.

  • Common FLSA violation cases that we handle involve:
    • Employers who have improperly classified an employee as exempt
    • Minimum wage violations (the current federal minimum wage is $7.25/hr)
    • Employers who fail to compensate an employee for “off the clock” work
    • Improperly excluding wage enhancements (for example, “shift differentials”)
    • Paying hourly workers a “salary”
    • Treating employees as “independent contractors”
    • Paying employees a “day rate” regardless of the number of hours worked

If you believe that your FLSA rights have been violated, we invite you to contact our wage and hour attorneys today for a free review of your case.
