Wage Claims

San Antonio FLSA Overtime Wage Claims Attorney

Serious concerns and disputes can arise over whether an employer is paying all the compensation lawfully due to employees. If you are involved in such a dispute or have questions about your rights and risks, it is essential to speak with an attorney who has in-depth knowledge of all federal and Texas labor laws that may apply.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a U.S. law that governs eligibility for overtime pay as well as related issues such as payment of the applicable minimum wage and proper classification of employees. The Texas Payday Act and a range of other protections may apply to your specific case.
