Wage & Hour


contact us

Most wage and hour violations can be avoided by implementing compliant policies and enforcing them consistently, including accurately documenting employee time tracking and carefully documenting any necessary corrections.

The state of Texas and the Department of Labor have established guidelines and enforcement procedures to ensure that employees are fairly compensated. Understanding and fully complying with these at times nuanced regulations, on the other hand, can be difficult for employers. Our firm can assist your company in achieving wage and hour compliance, as well as dealing with regulatory or civil actions brought against it for alleged violations.


Wage & Hour Laws

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), enacted in 1938, has been a cornerstone of worker rights protection. The FLSA established the 40-hour work week as one of its provisions, and subsequent amendments have strengthened labor rights even further. The FLSA ensures that employees are entitled to (1) at least the federal or state minimum wage and (2) time and a half for hours worked beyond 40 per week. Furthermore, among many other specific requirements and provisions, the FLSA protects workers from wage discrimination and promotes fairness in compensation practices.


FLSA Violations

In addition to violating exemption regulations, other examples of wage and hour violations include:

  • Failure to pay earned wages
  • Failure to pay minimum wage
  • Failure to observe required breaks
  • Failure to properly compensate for time
  • Failure to pay commission
  • Misclassification of employees as contractors
  • Forcing employees to work “off the clock”


The majority of wage and hour litigation can be avoided by implementing appropriate policies and procedures. Our firm can help your company implement such policies while also decisively litigating any regulatory or civil actions that arise.
