Raub Law Firm, P.C.


Corpus Christi Overtime Recovery Lawyer

Fighting for Clients Throughout Texas

The law divides almost all employees into two categories – Exempt or Nonexempt. If you are a “Nonexempt” employee and work over 40 hours in a workweek, you are generally entitled to overtime pay. It is that simple.

Overtime is supposed to be paid at time-and-a-half of your regular rate of pay. So, if you make $10 per hour, you should get $15 per hour for every hour you work over 40 hours per week.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) is the federal law governing the payment of minimum wage and overtime payments. As a general rule, the FLSA requires an employer to pay an employee overtime compensation for all “hours worked” in excess of 40 hours in a workweek, unless that employee is “Exempt” from the law. The law also provides that employees can recover double damages and attorneys fees if an employee sues under the FLSA to recover unpaid overtime or wages. To understand what it means to be “Exempt” or “Nonexempt”, see the “Are You Exempt” page.

A Full Day’s Work Deserves a Full Day’s Wage

Fair pay in the workplace is the law in Texas. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires covered employers to pay their employees 1 1/2 times their regular rate of pay for each and every hour worked over forty (40) in a work week.

In Texas, it is illegal for an employer to deny you overtime pay if you are a non-exempt employee. However, many employees have been mislead about their right to overtime pay for overtime worked.  In fact, you may be owed overtime pay even if:

  • You are paid a salary rather than hourly;
  • Your job title is manager or assistant manager, but you do very little true management work;
  • You are paid on a piece work basis;
  • You don’t have detailed records of all the hours you have worked;
  • You receive tips.

We believe that every client deserves personalized attention and quality legal representation. We handle overtime cases involving just one employee or hundreds.
