San Antonio Wage & Hour Lawyers
Your Local Employment Law Firm
Have you been a victim of illegal work and hour practices? Perhaps your employer could be asking you to work overtime and is not compensating you appropriately, or maybe they are unlawfully withholding certain percentages of your wages, but either way, you are being shortchanged. It is crucial to take immediate action when this occurs. Otherwise, you and the people who depend on you, such as your family, will be tremendously affected by your loss of income.
Employees sometimes fear the idea of taking up a suit against their employer, in case they could retaliate. However, with our powerful San Antonio wage and hour attorneys at your side, you can have supreme confidence in having security and protection against such vindication. Kennard Law, P.C. is devoted to giving you the true justice you deserve in the workplace.
Violations of Wage & Hour Laws
As an employee, you have fundamental rights to the ways that you are paid both for normal waged hours and for hours where you worked overtime. According to standard laws in Texas, every employee must be paid at least with the minimum wage for every hour that they have worked. In Texas, this minimum rate is that of the federal government, which is $7.25 an hour. In addition, if an employee has worked overtime, meaning more than 40 hours throughout a week, they are supposed to receive a rate of a time and a half of their normal hours, due to their sacrifice in working such long hours. This also includes workers who are salaried, since those who are paid by salary are still not exempt from these crucial benefits.
The problem is that many employers are either accidentally or willfully ignorant or neglectful of these laws, and violate these most crucial principles every single day. This is a direct violation of both federal and state law, which is why we are ready to combat it in court.
