Dallas Overtime Lawyers

Almost every employee is entitled to receive overtime pay for every hour worked over forty hours a week. These overtime pay laws place a heavy burden on employers when there is a dispute. You may be surprised how much money your employer owes you. Our Dallas overtime lawyers represent employees fighting against employers for unpaid overtime wages. Contact our Dallas employment lawyers today if you are owed overtime wages.

Understanding Overtime Pay Laws With limited exception, the Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to pay employees time and a half the regular rate of pay for every hour worked over forty hours a week.  There are some exceptions to this requirement.  However, the vast majority of employees are non-exempt employees by law and are owed overtime rates. Unfortunately, employers often take advantage of employees lack of legal knowledge and incorrectly classify employees as exempt.  For example, many employers will pay an administrative assistant a salary.  But administrative assistants are most likely not exempt employees and are owed overtime wages.
Damages for unpaid overtime add up quickly. Employers that violate the FLSA overtime requirements must pay (1) the unpaid overtime owed, (2) liquidated damages, which are double the actual damages, and (3) attorney fees. You may be surprised how quickly this adds up.

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.
