Overtime Wage – Houston Texas Employment Lawyer
At Hughes Ellzey, LLP, we are devoted to litigating employment law cases, primarily representing individuals in claims against their employers. Staying true to our mission of putting our clients first, our attorneys are smart and aggressive advocates with a high track record of success.
Our experienced lawyers’ understanding of federal and state wage and hour laws, federal and state civil rights and discrimination laws, federal and state False Claims Acts protecting whistleblowers, and other employment laws, allows us at Hughes Ellzey, LLC, to develop creative strategies to vindicate and help our clients secure the compensation which they are deserve.
Our firm handles all employment law cases arising out of virtually all employment situations you can think of, including but not limited to:
Wrongful Termination – Wrongful termination occurs when his or her employer wrongly fires an employee. Wrongful termination can be based on different reasons such as breach of an employment contract, retaliation, racial discrimination or for blowing the whistle on an employer.
Wage & Hour Claims – Employers are required under the law to pay a minimum wage and overtime to their employees.
Under the Fair Labour Standards Act (FLSA), workers are provided these basic rights, without any exceptions. Nevertheless, some employers violate these rights by denying workers overtime pay and failing to pay a minimum wage.
Employee Discrimination – We take pride in our ability to fight for the justice of employees who are being discriminated against in the workplace environment. Employment discrimination is a form of discrimination that is based on race, gender, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, and age by employers. If you believe that you are being discriminated against in your workplace, you can file for racial harassment, failure to promote or hire under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act (“TCHRA”).
False Claims Act: Includes cases arising under the federal False Claims Act (“FCA”) that imposes liability on persons who try to defraud governmental programs. If you have evidence that your employer has committed any act of fraud against the federal government, you need to act. Filing a lawsuit against a fraudulent employer can be beneficial to both you and your country.
