Resolving Overtime Law Violations
According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), an employer who permits a nonexempt employee to work overtime is required to pay that employee 1.5 times their regular pay rate. The state of Texas considers overtime to be any hours worked over the standard 40-hour work week. If you believe that your employer has failed to pay you the overtime wages you are owed, you should contact my firm, Egbuonu Law, for help recovering what you are owed.
