Employment Law

Unpaid Wages

Have you been exploited by your employer? Are they paying you lower wages than promised, or trying to make you work overtime without paying you adequately? James Shu & Associates has extensive practice experiences in helping clients with unpaid wages law suit.

To achieve its humanitarian goals, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets overtime pay, minimum wage, and record keeping requirements for covered employees.

Overtime pay: Covered nonexempt employees must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per workweek (any fixed and regularly recurring period of 168 hours - seven consecutive 24-hour periods) at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay.

Minimum Wage: The federal minimum wage is $6.55 per hour effective July 24, 2008; and $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009. Many states also have minimum wage laws. In cases where an employee is subject to both state and federal minimum wage laws, the employee is entitled to the higher minimum wage. Texas has the same standard of minimum wage as federal.

Record Keeping: Employers must display an official poster outlining the requirements of the FLSA. Employers must also keep employee time and pay records.
