Wage & Hour Violations in McAllen, TX

Let Our Experienced Employment Lawyers Fight for You

All employees are entitled to be compensated for the work they perform. However, employers sometimes violate federal and state laws by refusing to pay employees what they are owed. Wage and hour violations occur when employers fail to pay workers for all of the work they have done.

All employees must receive the following types of wages in a timely fashion:

  • Hourly rates
  • Salary
  • Overtime pay
  • Commissions
  • Bonuses
  • Deferred income

If your employer has failed to pay you your entitled wages, you have the right to sue your employer. At Guerra & Farah, PLLC, we are committed to helping our clients recover money from employers and ensure they are properly paid for their work. Throughout your employment claim, our McAllen employment attorney can provide you and your family with quality representation to ensure your rights are protected at all times.

What are Considered Wage & Hour Violations

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law which governs employment issues related to wage and hour regulations, including minimum wages and overtime pay for any hours worked over 40 in a week. If your employer fails to pay you all wages owed within a reasonable timeframe, you can pursue back wages that extend as far as back as three years. Additionally, you can also recover attorney fees and other monetary damages.

The following are common examples of wage and hour violations:

  • Failure to pay federal and/or state minimum wages
  • Failure to pay overtime wages for overtime labor
  • Failure to pay wages for all time spent performing work, including putting on and removing protective gear or for time spent traveling to job sites
  • Withhold tips and commission from employees
  • Discourage workers from exercising their right to meal or rest breaks
  • Failure to reimburse for business expenses
  • Failure to pay for on-the-job training
