Employer Not Paying You The Federal Minimum Wage?
If you are not receiving the minimum wage, or if you feel your employer has wrongly classified you as exempt status (salaried) in order to avoid paying minimum wage, you have the right to sue for back pay and other monetary damages. Discuss your case with an attorney at Warren & Siurek, L.L.P., in Houston.
We have been protecting the rights of workers in the greater Houston metropolitan area and southeast Texas for more than 25 years. Our practice focuses entirely on employment law.
Minimum Wage Claims For Workers In Southeast Texas Since 1992
The federal minimum wage for nonexempt (hourly) workers is $7.25 per hour.
Any hours worked over 40 hours per week at a minimum wage must be paid a 50 percent hourly premium. Employers failing to comply with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) may be subject to legal action, including a fine and covering the attorney’s fees of workers suing for overtime wages they are owed.
We are dedicated to preserving your right to fair pay for fair work. We have provided quality, experienced representation for numerous Texas workers who were paid less than the lawful minimum wage.
