Dallas – Houston- Austin Unpaid Overtime Lawyer
Get a Dallas, Houston or Austin unpaid overtime lawyer if your employer has cheated you out of your overtime pay. In Texas, non exempt hourly employees are entitled to an overtime pay rate for any hours worked over a total of 40 in a single work week (defined as any seven consecutive work days by the Fair Labor Standards Act).
While some states have daily overtime limit which entitles any employee who works for more then a certain number of hours in a single day to be paid overtime, Texas does not have a daily overtime limit. These overtime laws require you to be paid by your employer overtime pay for hours worked over forty hours a week. Texas and FLSA overtime laws require that overtime pay should be no less than one and one-half times the employee’s regular rate of pay.
