http://www.texasovertimeattorney.com/ Houston employment attorney Galvin Kennedy discusses a surprising topic in this video regarding Texas employee overtime laws and back pay. The Law Offices of Kennedy Hodges has found that often paralegals and legal assistants are victims of overtime laws and are denied overtime pay by their employers. Watch this video to hear more about Texas overtime laws. Frequently law firms violate overtime laws by not paying paralegals and legal assistants overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours in a workweek. Law firms often tell their legal assistants that they don’t qualify for overtime. However, paralegals and legal assistants do not fall under the professional exemption law because they don’t require an advanced degree for their field. This means that the majority of paralegals and legal assistants will most likely be due overtime and back wages unless they are considered exempt and hold an advanced degree in which those skills are used in that job. We have recovered back wages and overtime pay for hundreds of paralegals and legal assistants.
