An employee who is underpaid is someone who isn’t receiving adequate pay they earned based on the time they worked. An underpaid employee could also be a worker who was promised pay for a specific period of time but wasn’t provided with it. Some examples of an underpaid employee might include:

 

  • A worker who doesn’t receive over-time pay.
  • An employee who is paid less than minimum wage.
  • Someone who doesn’t receive a final check at the end of their employment.
  • A worker who was eligible for worker’s compensation pay but wasn’t provided with it.
  • An employee who went on FMLA but wasn’t provided with the proper income during their time away from work.

 

While your employer has rights, you do as well and it is extremely important that you become aware of exactly what these rights are. If your employer isn’t providing you with the compensation stated in the terms of your employment agreement or they failed to pay you over-time for the additional hours you worked, you either need to inform them of this issue or allow a Texas employment and labor law attorney to step in to try and rectify the situation before taking any further legal action. Sometimes all it takes is for an employer to learn that you are working with a labor law attorney and they might reconsider holding onto your income you rightfully earned.
