Wage and Hour Claims Lawyer in Sugar Land
Failure to Pay Overtime
Some of our society's most difficult jobs pay the people who are willing to do them very little in the way of money. These include restaurant employees, day laborers, agricultural workers, food processing plant employees, assembly line workers, retail employees, and others. The work involved in these jobs is hard and often back-breaking and the hours are long. To make matters worse, some employers try to take advantage of the fact that many of the people who take these jobs are immigrants who desperately need the work and who do not understand the laws of this country. In doing so, they sometimes require these employees to work much more than 40 hours a week without paying them the legally required overtime wage.
We think these workers deserve better treatment. If you or a loved one has been denied the money that you rightly earned, a Sugar Land wage and hours claim lawyer can assist you in taking legal action to seek fair payment.
