When you get up and go to work every day, you want to know that your employer is acting in good faith and paying you the salary you deserve. But in many instances, this is not the case.
For example, there have been a number of lawsuits in Texas that allege violations of state labor laws. These have been filed by people who mainly feel that they have either been harassed or discriminated against, or been denied a proper salary.
That is why it's so important to know your rights when it comes to labor and employment.
There are a number of state laws in place in Texas to protect workers' rights, including the Labor Code, the Payday Law, and the Minimum Wage Act. Employees are also guaranteed protection under such federal laws as the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
These types of laws are meant to prohibit businesses from such things as underpaying their workers based on minimum wage and overtime, denying a person the right to take unpaid leave due to a family emergency and not ensuring a safe working environment.
