Are You Entitled to Overtime Pay?
Most people don’t know that a majority of Texas workers are entitled to overtime pay. Employers must pay these workers 1.5 times their regular hourly wages for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours a week. Overtime laws in Texas are designed to prevent employers from exploiting their workers; however, many employers still do so by saying their workers are exempt from overtime pay. Often times, this is not true and employers are illegally withholding overtime pay. Andrew J. Wooley represents workers that have suffered from this type of wrongdoing.
