Houston Overtime Claims Lawyers
Employees aren’t expected to work more than a certain number of hours in a given week, but there are occasionally situations in which extra work may be necessary in order for a business or organization to be able to achieve its goals. In these cases, workers who put in more than the maximum number of hours in a work week are often entitled to receive overtime pay for their efforts. Unfortunately, it can often be difficult to get employers to recognize overtime pay requirements.
While not all workers are entitled to receive overtime pay, for those who are, it can be an important form of financial security, allowing workers to provide for themselves and their families. Therefore, when employers refuse to pay overtime that their employees have rightfully earned, they need to be held accountable. If your employer has refused your overtime pay in Houston, the lawyers at Ross Law Group understand the effects this can have on your financial well-being, and we are dedicated to helping employees protect their legal rights.
Overtime Claims Exemptions
Most workers are eligible to receive overtime pay. However, a few classes of workers are exempt from these requirements. These exemptions generally include:
- Professional workers
- Administrative workers
- Outside salespersons
For employees who do not belong to any of these employment categories, overtime claims may be a possibility for recovering unpaid or underpaid overtime wages.
