Understanding the Texas Payday Law
If you are having trouble getting your employer to pay the wages that are owed, then you can use the Texas Payday Law to get your wages paid faster.
The Law Offices of Filteau & Sullivan focus on employment law in Houston, Texas. Free consultation (713) 236-1400.
The Texas Payday Law was passed to discourage employers from withholding wages from employees.
Under the law, employees can enforce their claims for unpaid wages without having to go to court.
Filing a Wage Claim for Unpaid Wages
If an employee files a wage claim with the Texas Workforce Commission, then the commission will handle that wage claim administratively (out of court).
The result is that you can get your wages paid faster.
The Texas Payday Law does not apply to independent contractors, only to employees.
