Truck Drivers May Be Entitled To Overtime Pay

A Houston area company was forced to pay its truck drivers back overtime wages in response to an investigation conducted by the Department of Labor. Unfortunately, many employers pay their truck drivers a predetermined amount for each load hauled or a percentage of each load's value without taking into consideration the number of hours worked by the drivers. However, these types of payment schemes may violate the overtime law if the employer does not regularly transport goods across state lines. As a result, many truck drivers may be owed unpaid overtime compensation. If you are a truck driver, or were in the recent years, who was paid by the load and worked more than forty hours in a workweek, you should contact an attorney to determine whether or not you may be owed unpaid overtime wages.
