Overtime Pay for Overtime Worked is the Law.

overtime pay

Overtime pay isn’t as hard to miss as you think. As a Houston Overtime Lawyer for well over a decade, I can tell you that the most common reason people get taken advantage of at work is because they don’t speak up.

There are plenty of reasons why one would stay silent, but in the grand scheme of things, they could be sacrificing valuable time living their lives, spending time with their family or perhaps working another job. Here are a few common reasons I hear pretty often:

  • It’s a good job, but competitive. So, I don’t mind putting in a little extra time if it means securing my position.
  • What if I get fired? It’s too risky.
  • My boss won’t let me have overtime, but my workload can’t get done within a 40 hour work week.

These are just a few common reasons why normal, hardworking people let their overtime pay slip away every day. The truth is, your time is too valuable to be taken advantage of.
