Our Houston Hour and Wage Attorney Will Assure You Are Paid Properly For the Time That You’ve Worked
Is your employer paying you a Day Rate? If so, our Houston Hour and Wage Attorney can help.
While there are several reasons employers might choose a day-rate pay structure, they often do so in an effort to minimize the amount they have to pay on overtime. A day rate pay structure may be legal if your employer also pays you overtime when you work more than 40 hours in a week. However, many employers do not pay overtime to day rate workers, which is a clear violation of federal overtime law under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and various state laws.
If you receive a day rate and you don’t know if you’ve been properly paid for hours worked, contact Wyly & Cook immediately for a FREE consultation. We will analyze your pay stubs and documentation to find out if your current or former employer owes you money.
