Seeking Justice for Lost Oil Field Wages in Texas
In many cases, oil field workers may not realize that they have lost wages
they are entitled to, or do not understand their right to receive such
wages. There are a number of ways that some companies avoid paying their
employees the wages they deserve. Review the list below if you think you
are not getting the funds you are entitled to and contact a lawyer right away.
Oil field workers lose wages in the following ways:
Misclassification: Certain jobs are exempt from benefits such as overtime. When an oil field
worker is mislabeled as an exempt employee, they can lose privileges they
would normally be entitled to.
Overtime work: In many cases, employers pay less than the legal minimum for overtime.
This strips a worker of the additional funds they should receive for their
"Off the clock" work: Some companies refuse to pay their employees for meetings on-the-job
travel time. These hours are actually payable, and should not be overlooked.
If you discover that you have not received adequate pay, don't wait
to file a claim. Several laws prevent money from being recovered after
a certain amount of time, and depending on how long your wages have been
withheld, this could mean the loss of thousands of dollars. The oil field
wage lawyers at our firm can help you take action to recover these funds
in a timely manner and ensure that you receive maximum compensation for
the wages you have lost.
We can offer committed representation to protect your rights in any situation.
