Dallas Wage Disputes Lawyer
Fort Worth Overtime Pay Attorney
Unpaid Overtime • Forced to Work Without Pay • Misclassified as Exempt
At the law office of Frenkel & Frenkel, we are passionate about protecting the rights of people who have been taken advantage of or treated unfairly. That's why we handle cases of car dealer fraud and debt collector abuse.
We also tackle employment law cases in which employees have been cheated out of their overtime pay or other benefits by their employers. Some employers are able to force workers into performing unpaid overtime because most workers do not know their rights under Texas employment law.
If you think your rights have been violated or your employer has cheated you out of your pay by assigning unpaid overtime or misclassifying you as a salaried employee, contact our Dallas law office to schedule a free initial consultation. We are trial attorneys with more than 15 years of experience tackling difficult cases in court. We can help you and your fellow workers get the compensation you are owed.
We represent individual workers and groups of workers who have suffered unfair working conditions. Examples of unfair working conditions that defraud hourly workers of the pay they should have received include:
- Being asked to work off the clock or unpaid overtime on a regular basis
- Not being paid for travel time
- Not being paid for prep time before entering a clean room
Hourly workers aren't the only ones being treated unfairly. Sometimes companies misclassify workers as salaried professional employees when they actually should be hourly workers. By manipulating who they classify as exempt vs. non-exempt, companies convince workers that they are required to work overtime without getting overtime pay.
Professional workers are defined by having some autonomy and discretion in when and how they do their work. They may manage or supervise other employees. They make decisions and have some authority. If these are not part of your job, you may be misclassified as salaried when you should be paid hourly — and it is not likely to your benefit.
If you think you have been misclassified or are being expected to work unpaid overtime, call 1-800-834-0000 or contact our Dallas law office online to schedule a free initial consultation with a knowledgeable lawyer who can protect your rights.
