Help from Houston Wage & Hour Dispute Lawyers
Your employee classification determines the benefits that you are entitled to and how much you are compensated under both federal and state laws. When an employer misclassifies you, either by accident or because they are intentionally trying to skirt the laws, you may lose out on money, benefits, or both.
Employees can be classified as any of the following:
- Temporary full-time, working 40 hours per week for a temporary amount of time
- Regular full-time, working a 40-hour work week indefinitely
- Temporary or regular part-time with benefits
- Temporary or regular part-time excluding benefits
- On-call employees
- On-call or interns with benefit plan participation
All of these classifications have their own specific laws governing how employers pay you and if you are eligible for benefits. If you think your employer has misclassified you, contact the wage and hour dispute lawyers at Wyly & Cook, PLLCto discuss your case.
