Both federal and state laws govern employment law issues in Texas. Federally, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulates wage, overtime, and child employment standards for employees who are covered by the FLSA. FLSA applies to all governmental bodies, hospitals and health care providers, schools, and any company or organization with sales or receipts of $500,000 or more.  FLSA also sets the federal minimum wage standard, which is currently $7.25 per hour. Texas also has an extensive set of labor-related laws. The state adopts the Federal minimum wage standards. Additionally, The Labor Law Section of the Texas Workforce Commission administers two programs: the Texas Payday Law and the Texas Child Labor Law. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling cases under both state and federal law.
