Houston Unpaid Overtime Lawyer
Assertive Representation in Overtime Disputes
Federal law states that an employer must pay all nonexempt employees overtime pay for any hours worked if they work more than 40 hours in a week. However, employers can make mistakes or intentionally misclassify employees as exempt in order to avoid paying them overtime. In some cases, employers may even outright refuse to pay for hours worked. At Stephens Reed & Armstrong, PLLC, we work to help wronged employees seek rightful wages and, in some cases,, possibly even damages.
