Unpaid wages and overtime (Fair Labor Standards Act)

As a hard-working employee, you deserve to be compensated for the hours you have earned. The North Texas overtime lawyers at K&M are here to protect your rights to fair pay for fair work. The wage and overtime lawyers at K&M are a high-energy law firm with the resources to explore all factual and legal aspects of your case.

Federal law protects the rights of employees. The Fair Labor Act (“FLSA”) has been enacted to protect employees who are entitled to unpaid minimum wage and overtime. The FLSA allows the employee to recover back wages from his or her employer, and to “an additional equivalent amount as liquidated damages.” In addition, the employer will be found liable for all of its attorney’s fees and expenses.

K&M’s employment law office firmly believes in our nation’s cherished principle of fair pay for honest work. We are here to protect workers and employees in wage and overtime disputes regarding the following:

  • Overtime

  • Minimum Wage Status

  • Collective Tipping Violations

  • Sales Commissions


The Dallas-Fort Worth unpaid wages attorneys at K&M are here to make sure that the employer does not take advantage of you by misclassifying the employees’ rank and file as “white collar” to exempt them from the application of the FLSA, among other things.
