Minimum Wage Lawyers Serving Austin

Our Unpaid Wage Attorneys Fight To Enforce Minimum Wage LawsThe unpaid wage lawyers at Rob Wiley, P.C. represent employees in disputes with their employers because they were not paid the minimum wage. If you are not paid the minimum wage, contact our minimum attorneys today.

What is the Federal Minimum Wage?The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. Some states and cities require that a higher wage be paid. However, Texas is not one of those states.  In Texas, the minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.  However, if you work more than forty hours a week, your employer will owed you the appropriate overtime rate.

Wage laws are complicated.  Contact our minimum wage lawyers if you employer is not paying you correctly.

What are some of common minimum wage violations?Employers often make mistakes in paying employees.  For example, an employer may not pay an employee for all the hours worked or fail to pay the correct overtime rate.  Additionally, some employers will hire commission only employees and fail to pay them minimum wage. Federal law also requires employers to pay hourly employees at least twice a month.

Federal law mandates how employees should be paid, not the employer.  If you have not being paid correctly, contact our minimum wage lawyers today.

What is the Minimum Wage for Workers Who Receive Tips?The minimum wage for tipped employees in $7.25 per hour. However, an employer may take a tip credit when paying tipped employees.  This means that employers may pay tipped employees $2.13 per hour.  However, if a tipped employee is paid $2.13 an hour in direct wages, the employee's tips plus the $2.13 an hour paid by the employer must equal the minimum wage.

Using the tip credit to meet the minimum wage requirements is a privilege, not a right. An employer must strictly comply with all regulations regarding the tip credit or the employer loses the tip credit. If an employer loses the tip credit, the employer must go back and pay the $5.12 difference (for a total of $7.25 an hour) for every hour worked by the employee in the past two or three years. Additionally, in many cases, the employer must pay a penalty equal to the amount owed.

Contact Our Employment Lawyers ImmediatelyThere are often short time periods in which an employee must bring a claim against an employer.  If you believe you have a claim for minimum wages, please contact an employment attorney immediately.
Client Reviews
I would recommend the Law Office of Rob WIley, P.C. to anybody needing assistance with employment rights. They did an incredible job of handling my case professionally and in a very resonable time frame. In my initial consultation with Rob Wiley I was given a very straight forward analysis of my claims after which Fadi Yousef was the attorney assigned to my case. Working with Fadi was the best. He showed care and a true concern for the direction and result of my lawsuit. Fadi was always available and was in constant communication with me throughout. I thank Fadi Yousef, Rob Wiley and his team for doing a phenomenal job, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. R.G.
Rasha, Eric and Rob did it again a Second time around! I'll admit, they are truly the BEST employment lawyers out here in the Metroplex! Not only they won a case against my previous employer, they also won my unemployment insurance (UI) case as well! It is such a relief and a huge burden off my shoulders about not worrying how I'm going to pay my bills now and provide food for my family. I can't say enough how awesome they are and how far they go to make sure you are taken well care of. Thank you so much Rasha, Eric and Rob for all that you did for me! J.T.
