don't let your boss keep it.
Employees working in many industries fall victim to employers who either fail to pay them wages that are due, or refuse to acknowledge that an employee is even eligible for those wages.
The attorneys of the Briggle & Polan, PLLC, have heard the excuses employers make to justify illegal employment and payment practices. We are also trained legal counselors who have a full understanding of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and its strict requirements for employers.
Our law firm represents vulnerable employees throughout the Houston, TX and TX in wage and overtime pay disputes with their employers. Our attorneys assist workers in recovering these wages, as well as the sense of pride lost when an employer violates an employee's rights.
The following are just some of the job descriptions that are vulnerable to wage and overtime violations, and for which the firm provides legal representation:
Employers may deny employees' overtime pay by claiming the work was not performed, or that it was "owed" to the employer for some reason. They may try to bend the rules by offering "comp time" instead of paying actual overtime pay during a given time period. They may claim that hours spent traveling, working irregular hours or other requirements are "unpaid" and "part of the job."
Employers may even deny employees minimum wage by exploiting a worker's immigration status or by intimidating them.
If these situations sound familiar, your employer may be in violation of the FLSA and liable for paying damages to you or taking other corrective action. If you are one of many workers in the same situation with an employer, Briggle & Polan, PLLC, can represent you as part of a larger class action lawsuit that can send a strong message while compensating you for damages.
