Wage & Hour

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.

Types of Wage & Hour Violations

Here at Kennard Law, P.C., our experienced lawyers are used to seeing claims made on multiple violations of hourly and wage laws. Usually, an employer who is unscrupulous about one law will tend to perpetrate other illegal behaviors as well, violating wage and hour standards in several aspects. No matter whether you have been maltreated in one instance or in multiple cases, you need to contact our attorneys immediately.

Our powerful and aggressive attorneys have been extremely successful at winning cases against employment malpractice in areas dealing with:

  • Minimum wage
  • Overtime hours that have gone unpaid
  • Overtime rate that has been incorrectly calculated
  • Reclassification of employee positions to avoid paying higher wages
  • Using tips to pay others’ wages rather than giving them to the rightful staff

Contact us now at (855) 499-4514 if you are looking for detailed, knowledgeable answers for any of your questions on hours and wages at your place of employment.

Defense in Complicated Situations

One would think that gaining one’s rightful compensation for a job well done would be a simple, obvious matter. Unfortunately, it can get complicated unless you have our experienced San Antonio wage and hour lawyers representing your case. Employers will try to protect their reputation and their own finances, and will often deny everything or try to shift the blame on you. However, if you have Kennard Law, P.C. supporting you, then you can face the future with confidence. We are determined to take strong and aggressive action in fighting those who have maltreated you at work.

Call us today at (855) 499-4514 or contact us online if you want our determined employment law attorneys to help you gain true recompense for the injustice you have endured at work.
