Who Launched Houston?
Houston’s workers have built it into a world-class city, from the oil and gas sector, to cutting edge medical and high tech facilities. But with that buzz and businesses coming in from all over the country, some employers still fail to treat their employees fairly or legally, especially when it comes to paying overtime wages. The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (the “FLSA”) means business. Know your rights as a worker, individually and collectively. Let VLF’s Houston overtime lawyers take care of business for you and your buddies, and let’s make sure your paycheck includes all those extra hours you put into your jobs.
What Are Employer Responsibilities?
Under the federal law employees are entitled to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours in a week. Even if you are called a “salaried employee” or a “contractor” or “manager”, you may be entitled to overtime. Your duties are what determines if you are exempt from overtime. VLF’s overtime lawyers will fight to get employees compensated for their hard work. Paying overtime is not a privilege but an obligation required by federal law.
You may be entitled to overtime if you:
- Work more than 40 hours per week;
- Are not paid overtime because you are on salary;
- Do not receive overtime pay because you are classified as a ‘Manager’; or
- Misclassified as an ‘Independent Contractor’ when you are really an ‘Employee’.
