Labor laws are set in place to establish the responsibilities of employers and to ensure that workers' rights are upheld. When your employer violates the overtime laws of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), you should seek legal guidance from our lawyer at once to resolve the mistreatment you have faced. Don't hesitate to get experienced counsel and guidance on your side!
The Fair Labor Standards Act was the first to establish federal minimum hourly wage standards. Employers are legally required to pay at least minimum wage to eligible employees. In addition, the Fair Labor Standards Act establishes a 40-hour work week for most full-time employees. If a non-exempt employee works more than the standard 40 hours, he or she is entitled to overtime pay at one-and-a-half times his or her wage.
If your employer has failed to provide you with your earned overtime wages, you should take immediate action. In Texas, a two-year statute of limitations is set in place for individuals whose rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act have been violated by an employer. At The Webster Law Firm, we know your rights and we are devoted to protecting them.
Some of the cases we handle concerning the FLSA include:
- Wage disputes
- Health benefits
- Workplace safety
- Employment discrimination
