Dallas Wage and Hour Lawyer
Whether you are an oil field worker, employed at factory or work in a medical office, underpayment of wages is a serious situation. Fewer dollars in a paycheck can have a big impact on a budget. As Texas wage and hour attorneys, we want you to contact us if you think you many have a wage and hour claim against an employer. It may be wise to speak with a Kilgore & Kilgore attorney who can explain your employee rights and options. As fair wage attorneys, we understand the complexities of employment law and employee legal rights.
Was Your Paycheck Short a Few Dollars?
Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) every hourly employee in the nation is entitled to receive a fair wage for time spent working. Wage and hour claims may be brought against an employer who violates this law. The wage and hour lawyers at Kilgore & Kilgore help employees pursue companies that violate employee rights at work in state or federal court.
Some examples of compensation violations by employers involve such actions as:
- Failure to pay overtime;
- Underpayment or payroll deductions that violate federal wage laws;
- Pay for preparation time;
- On-call or wait-time pay; and
- Being asked to work off the clock.
Class Action Lawsuits Offer Power in Numbers
It is rare for a single worker to pursue a fair wage claim. The chances of success are far greater when a group of employees files a class action lawsuit. Wage claims are expensive to pursue and an individual claim might not offset legal costs. By banding together with other workers in a similar situation, you can file a class action claim, spreading out the costs and putting the power in numbers behind the lawsuit. Our class action attorneys can help. Our class action lawsuit attorneys have successfully pursued wage and hour claims against some of the biggest companies in Texas and elsewhere.
