UPHOLDING THE FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT

Representing Clients Against FLSA Violations in Houston

The FLSA was put in place to establish the 40-hour work week, overtime requirements, minimum wage, record keeping standards, and more. These wage and hour standards were intended to protect employees from being taken advantage of by illegal actions on behalf of employers.

More than 130 million workers in the U.S. are covered by the FLSA, and you probably are as well. The FLSA protects employees of hospitals, nursing homes, schools, preschools, government agencies, and employees of many business organizations.

Do you believe that your employer has violated the Fair Labor Standards Act, causing you to suffer as a result? Fortunately, help is only a phone call away – our legal team at Wyly & Cook, PLLC can represent you against an employer who is guilty of a wage and hour dispute.

Who Does the Fair Labor Standards Act Cover?

Regardless of the type of duties you perform in your job, employees in specific industries are protected by the FLSA. Therefore, your employer is required to pay you at least the minimum wage and overtime for any extra hours that you work. If you are unsure whether your job or your company is covered, we would be happy to consult with you and ensure you are aware of your rights.

The following are covered under the FLSA:

  • Federal employees
  • State employees
  • Government employees
  • School employees
  • Hospital employees
  • High-income company employees
