Labor Laws in San Antonio, TX
Federal laws protect workers’ rights to be paid overtime and to bring claims against their employers. For example, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) prohibits illegal payroll practices, and provides the right for eligible employees to be paid overtime. If your employer is refusing to pay you 1.5 times your regular rate of pay, they’re violating the FLSA if you are eligible for overtime.
Some circumstances may require that your incentive pay, COVID premium pay, bonuses, and commissions be included in your overtime rate. Many employers will try to avoid paying their employees for overtime hours by paying a piece rate, misclassifying workers as independent contractors, forcing teams to work off-the-clock, or stating that employees are exempt from the additional pay. The laws and regulations are extensive and complex, so it’s in your best interest to let your unpaid overtime dispute be handled by experienced wage and hour attorneys. Our lawyers will fight to recover the wages you’re owed.
