Wage & Hour Claims
Many claims against businesses for violations of Texas’ and federal wage and hour laws are caused by the business’ lack of knowledge regarding all the requirements outlined in the Texas Payday Law and the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. At McCleskey, Harriger, Brazill & Graf, our lawyers believe that the best way to prevent such a claim is to ensure that our clients have a working knowledge of the Texas and federal wage and hour laws and know how to comply with them.
In addition to counseling our business clients on all of the relevant wage and hour laws, our lawyers also frequently provide training to management teams on how to ensure that they comply with those laws in order to prevent any claims by employees or groups of employees.
Sometimes, however, even the most conscientious employer may be the subject of a wage and hour claim. When that occurs, our lawyers work aggressively to dispute any such claims, resolve them in a timely and cost-effective manner, and generally protect our clients’ interests and good reputation.
If a wage and hour claim must go to trial, however, our lawyers are prepared to litigate it all the way from preliminary injunction to appeal. We also have significant expertise resolving such cases through mediation and arbitration.
McCleskey’s employment and labor lawyers have a reputation for integrity, a commitment to excellence, and deep roots in our community, going back for generations. Our goal is to help our clients succeed and prosper, long after their legal issues are resolved. By providing a full array of exceptional legal services to the businesses and individuals who make our community strong, we’re helping to ensure that the West Texas and New Mexico region remains a great place to call home.
