OVERTIME WAGE CLAIMS | FLSA
In Texas, and under federal legislation (Fair Labor Standards Act – FLSA), a worker must receive minimum wage and must receive overtime wages if she or he has worked more than a 40 hour work week. Usually, overtime accumulates to time and a half of the employee’s regular hourly wage salary. However, there are a lot of common misconceptions about overtime wages, and often employers take advantage of their employee’s naiveté. Common fields with wage claims include:
- Oil and gas field workers
- Sales representatives
- Nurses and healthcare workers
- Service technicians
- Restaurant employees
