Making Sure You Get Paid What You Are Owed
If you think your employer is not paying you the full amount of salary, wages, overtime, commissions or bonuses you are owed for the work you provided, you have legal protections.
At Warren & Siurek, L.L.P., in Houston, our lawyers have been effectively representing workers involved in wage and hour disputes with employers in southeast Texas for more than 25 years.
Is Your Employer Not Following The Law?
Under the provisions of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers must comply with a set of regulations governing how workers are compensated. We have extensive experience in wage and hour litigation related to:
- Unpaid overtime compensation — There are many myths about when overtime is or is not required. We can set you straight and hold your employer accountable.
- Minimum wage violations
- Unpaid bonuses, commissions and deferred compensation
- Independent contractors — The treatment of workers in the gig economy has made the distinction between contractors and employees even more important.
- Exempt vs. nonexempt status — Salaried workers are exempt from many of the regulations regarding overtime pay and minimum wage requirements. Many employers misclassify their employees as exempt or as independent contractors in order to require additional hours beyond the standard 40 hours per week and to save on having to pay various benefits.
