Wage Disputes

Handling Wage Disputes for Clients Nationwide

We Can Recover Your Lost Earnings

When an employer denies you wages or compensation that you are due according to the law of the terms of your employment, you have the right to take legal action against them. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards for employers to follow.

The following issues are laid out in this act:

  • All employees in the US are entitled to at least the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, which is the minimum wage in Texas.
  • Employees who work more than 120 hours per workweek must earn at least one and one-half times their regular rate of pay.
  • Hours of work are defined as those times an employee must be on duty at the specified premises.
  • Employers are required to keep FLSA regulations posted and must maintain employee time and pay records.
  • The FLSA has provisions prohibiting the employment of minors.

The FLSA covers public and private employers. It also provides rules that apply to service-related jobs which involve tipping to regulate tip-pools.

Issues that fall under wage disputes include:

  • Refusal to pay sales commission upon termination of employment
  • Your employer asks you to work with no pay or off the clock
  • Not abiding by the terms of the employment contract
  • Refusal to pay overtime
  • Refusal to pay the minimum wage
  • Incorrect filing of an employee's legal status

If you have a legitimate conflict with your employer over any facet of your wages, The Webster Law Firm has over two decades of combined experience and can fight for the wages you rightfully earned. Your first step is to gather as much documentation as you can—pay stubs, copies of time cards, emails, or anything else that will connect your employer to misconduct. From there, you should call a lawyer immediately.
