Longview Overtime Law Attorney
Overtime Law Information
If you are not being paid the overtime you deserve from your employer, you need to know that you have rights. While it can be extremely intimidating to go against your employer, the law protects you, and guarantees you the overtime that is due to you. Speak with a Longview personal injury attorney from our firm today to discuss your rights as an employee and to determine if you have a viable claim against your employer.
One reason many people do not pursue their fair overtime wages, is that they are afraid of what their employer will do. As an employee, you are protected under the Fair Labor Standards Act. This means that for most employees (depending on your line of work), you are entitled to make 1½ times your normal pay when you work anything beyond 40 hours in one week. Additionally, it is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you in any way for pursuing a claim, either by terminating you, cutting back your hours, or giving you poor reviews. If you feel that your employer has retaliated against you illegally, further legal action can be taken.
